7 Tiles Short of Completing Backsplash!!

15 years ago close! Just put up the backsplash tile today, changed plans a little bit and now we are 7 tiles short of completing! Trying to call local tile shops just in case anyone has a small supply of samples or partial boxes. Otherwise, we will need to special order a full 10 sq ft box from the distributor. We thought we had allowed enough for cutting and wastage when we ordered but just not quite enough.

We will go ahead and grout tomorrow and hope some extra tile turns up! We like the tile and believe it adds the warmth and old world "rustic" natural stone look we hoped for. Thanks for all the feedback about the 6x6 accent piece for the butler pantry area. I did decide it needed a little more "punch" so also added the 1/2 inch scroll border on all 3 sides. The butler pantry right side wall is the one we can't complete without more tile. We decided to change the standard subway tile pattern at the pantry wall and used vertical "soldier" tile to flank the accent piece.
