If you don’t want to harvest new wood for your backsplash project, you can take your cue from Karen Swanson of New England Design Works, who had her contractor rip sheets of found plywood into 6-inch-wide planks, and install them 3/8″ apart on the walls of this kitchen. This resourceful backsplash — a modern interpretation of shiplap paneling, Swanson explains — is painted with Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo paint, which makes it stand up well in a kitchen. “Painted plywood is not as ‘bullet proof’ as some other backsplash choices one could make,” Swanson concedes. “I would suggest wiping up spills quickly and not allowing standing water next to this — but then again, I also suggest that with a tile and grouted backsplash.”
