My better half liked the look of a glass splash back which is painted on the back (I admit I did as well till we saw the price – R3500 :- $350). Because I couldn’t help it, I decided to see if I could do it myself – I mean how hard could it be?
Actually it all turned out surprisingly easy and I must say at less than a third of the price, well worth the effort.
I approached the supplier who did my frame-less glass shower and got him to supply me with a sheet of 6mm toughened glass. I then gave one side a light sanding with 1200 grit water paper (just to give a slight key to the paint). Then with thinners I cleaned and then cleaned again the side to be sprayed.
Then it was simply 2 coats Acrylac spray paint and some double-sided tape – here is the result (painted side goes at the back):
