Backsplash prep

A few weeks ago I gave the plaster behind the sink some attention. I patched some cracks, filled some voids, and generally had a fun time.

I let it dry over the weeks, promising "I'd be back" and I've noticed how much shrinkage really does occur. I don't think 2 days is enough time. Even over a week of really dry weather there was more shrinkage. Once the next layer goes on, I'll wait another couple weeks and do a third coat, sanding in between. Tarps of plastic will keep the kitchen mostly clean.

We're still debating doing stainless steel or tile. We saw a nice stainless backsplash recently that kinda turned us back onto it. N even suggested it!
