When we decided to go ahead with our kitchen remodel a few months ago it was with the knowledge that only one side of the room would get new cabinets. The other side of the galley style kitchen would keep the old cabinets on the bottom with a cosmetic update, namely paint and new hardware.
The counter top would also have to be replaced because of the hole the old cooktop left in it.
Last weekend hubby and I took on the project of building a new countertop and finishing it with new ceramic tile. Something neither one of us had ever done! Well, we accomplished the task but not without a few tense moments and a few disagreements on how it should be done.
Dave is examining the grout and leaving a finger print.... LOL! I think we were both amazed the tile actually turned out fairly decent.
After a new paint job and some new hardware I think it has come together rather well!
This week we will be waiting for our electrician to install a couple of recessed lights in the soffit over the cabinet and another outlet or two. You can never have too many electrical outlets in a kitchen!
Oh... that wall behind the counter... well I have an idea for that. You'll have to stay tuned to see what it is! I have been watching HGTV's Fixer Upper show for some ideas! Do you watch Fixer Upper? It's my most favorite show to watch right now... much to hubby's dismay! LOL! There's always another project on the horizon!
