Look at this clever, pretty idea we just picked up from one of the entries in the Fall Colors Contest...

This is from the second Midwest entry:

Rachel's Bungalow of Bright Ideas (click to see all the photos from Rachel's entry)

Rachel hung a vintage metal tray over her stove; we love how it not only beautifies her kitchen but also serves a practical purpose. She can clip recipes and notes on with magnets, and the tray comes down easily for cleaning. This is a lovely and practical backsplash; we're thinking about something similar now in our own kitchen.

Do you use something removable and washable as a backsplash behind your stove?
