The main event of my Jeffrey Court Renovation Challenge has finally arrived! I picked Jeffrey Court’s Hampton Cove glass mosaic tile for our kitchen backsplash and started to install it during the latter half of week 5.
This is the most exciting part of my renovation challenge, but along with it comes stress and a little bit of worry. 6 weeks is not a lot of time to take on the various projects I had planned for this kitchen renovation. I’ve been starting very early in the mornings and working all the way to bedtime for 7 days a week.
We’re now in the final week of this renovation challenge, but I will by no means be walking across the finish line! There’s still a ton of work to do.

Painting the Pallet Wood Cabinet Accent
I spent the first half of week 5 finishing up the pallet wood accent above the cabinets. The toughest part of this project was actually the crown molding. I don’t have that much experience with crown molding and boy was this a challenge!
My brain has a difficult time figuring out the cuts. I’m sure with more experience I could have installed it quickly but it took me a while to figure things out. After spackle and caulk it was finally time to paint with my Wagner FLEXiO 3500 sprayer. I first covered the areas in my kitchen I didn’t want to paint with plastic and FrogTape.
Wagner FLEXiO 3500
Painting with a Wagner sprayer is so satisfying! I have personally used several different Wagner sprayer models and enjoying using this one. Here’s a list of FLEXiO 3500 features:
- Ideal for interior and exterior projects such as walls, decks, fences, furniture, cabinets and more
- Sprays 10X faster than a brush and covers a 8×10 wall in 5 minutes
- Compact lightweight design makes it easy to handle – 10% lighter than previous FLEXiO models
- Multiple adjustable settings to suit project needs
- iSpray nozzle sprays a textured finish on broad surfaces like walls and ceilings
- Detail Finish Nozzle sprays a smooth, fine finish on cabinets, furniture and trim
- Variable speed X-Boost turbine delivers the power to spray unthinned paints and stains
- Lock-N-Go System offers quick disassembly for cleaning or color changes
- Includes Bonus Cup Liner for quick and easy clean up
- Durable storage case keeps the sprayer protected between projects
I recommend FrogTape in every DIY tutorial article involving paint on this site and for good reason: FrogTape is the best. If achieving sharp paint lines is important to you, use FrogTape.
I’ve never had an issue with this awesome painter’s tape. Why is it so effective? Allow FrogTape itself to explain:
FrogTape brand painter’s tapes that are treated with patented PaintBlock Technology, have a super-absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed and creating clean, crisp paint lines. These FrogTape products include Multi-Surface, Delicate Surface and Pro Grade, which are perfect for any painting project. Whether you’re taping off baseboards, trim and walls for basic painting applications, or creating decorative patterns, FrogTape makes it easy to achieve professional-looking results and is the brand pro’s rate #1 for sharp paint lines with no paint bleed.– FrogTape
Installing the Jeffrey Court Glass Mosaic Tile
The photos above don’t come close to showing the absolute beauty of these Jeffrey Court Hampton Cove glass mosaic tiles. The lighting isn’t great because the main lights are still off.
It’s a thrill to install these tiles and to see the vision of our renovation I’ve had for months come to life! I’ll explain more about the installation process in my final reveal post next week.
As I mentioned, there’s still a ton of work to do and I’m racing to complete our renovation before the deadline 7 days from now. There are a few surprise projects I wanted to add to this renovation, but they may not happen because I’m simply running out of time.
Finish line here we come!
