I'd been toying with adding some stick-on tiles as a backsplash to both kitchen and bathroom areas.  Finally saw a couple of different applications in an Oliver and decided I'd give it a go.  Ordered these: https://smile.amazon.com/LONGKING-Backsplash-Stickers-Talavera-Mexican/dp/B07DR8F44K/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Peel+and+Stick+Backsplash+Tile+Stickers%2C+Gray+Talavera+Mexican+Tiles&qid=1588613058&s=home-garden&sr=1-1 --- then $30 and since I can't be out camping, decided to at least work in the Oliver.

One package of 10 tiles was more than enough, even with one square (3x3 tiles; about 1 square foot) bunged up and pulled off.  The tiles are pretty sticky, but can come off if needed but I suspect will stay stuck pretty well.

Good job, I’ve been considering doing a backsplash as well to add a little color and I like the look you have going there. Encouraging, may get me started!👍

SteveC - great thing about this project is it's cheap and pretty easy with a high return.  Amazon has tons of choices of stick on tiles too.  Go for it!  Post some pics if you do it.  🙂

Are the tiles heat resistant; the stove is pretty close to the wall there.  I did this a while back in our 5th-wheel, but omitted the area behind the stove because the tiles I purchased (from Lowes or Home Depot, don't recall) were not intended for use behind stoves.
