Copper backsplash


Q. I am looking for a copper finish called the butterfly. I saw it on a web page now I can't find it. It looked like small circles. Does any one know where I could find this or how to do it myself. Also what is the best coating to protect copper from discoloring. I plan to use it as a backsplash in my kitchen.

Thanks for any help.

RFQ: I'm looking for the same thing - copper backsplash - textured. There was an article in Washington Post Home section - however there was no resource on where to purchase. Did you find?

Thank you.

A. Try a company called Classic Ceilings.

They have the copper backsplash you are looking for.

How to attach copper sheet to dining room table


Q. I have a dining room table that I want to attach a thin piece of copper sheeting to. I need to know where to get the copper and how to put it on . I would like the name of a Michigan distributor.

Thank you,

A. Revere copper makes a line of copper sheeting with imprinted patterns for design use called the Liberty collection that would work. They have a website. One distributor is Frigo Design.

A. Ann,
I would use contact cement to adhere the copper to your table. You can get 5 mil (36 gauge) copper sheets and cut them easily with scissors or a utility knife. A base coat of Lacquer followed by a flood coat of epoxy will give you a beautiful look and great protection for many years. Hope that helps.
