Alloy Deco Chalkboard 5/8" x 5/8" Glass and Stone Tile
If you want a tile that will blend into your decor, but also make a statement of your own, you have found it in this shining example. A mix of frosted glass in black, metallic silver, pewter and painted foil, the effect is a dizzying display of light and dark. Covering the wall as a kitchen back splash or the surround of the fireplace, you will feel as if you're surrounded by a starry midnight sky. The mesh backing not only simplifies installation, it also allows the tiles to be separated which adds to their design flexibility. Exposure to moisture will cause metallic paint to discolor. Not suitable for outdoor, pool or shower installation
