Kitchen Remodel: Almost Done Edition!

OMG you guys! We have back splash!!!

It wasn't nearly as hard as we thought it was going to be to pick it out. And it wasn't nearly as expensive as we thought it was going to be to have it professionally installed. And it didn't take anywhere as long as we thought it might take! 

We debated about getting a stainless back splash here above the stove, but it was as expensive as we though it might be, so we went with tile. I really like the way it looks, and it's all sealed so it should be stain proof. 

Oh, and some where along the way (like waaaaaay back two whole weeks ago when we were getting ready for our florida trip) our upper cabinets got installed, too! I finally got to put my dishes away and clear off my dining room table, HOO-fucking-RAY!

Some final painting will be done next week (see that bulkhead between the ceiling and the cabinets? THAT) and that hole in the ceiling you see in the top right there needs patched, but we have the tiles cut to the size of the hole. Scaredy cat tile guy wouldn't put them up for us because of liability, but he was nice enough to cut them for us, saving us from having to buy a wet saw. SOB was a little disappointed, I think. He always loves adding to his saw collection.

The floor, which is hardly ever pictured, will be professionally done sometime soon, but not in the next few weeks. SOB is going to install some under cabinet lighting and fix the ceiling hole, and we're just about finished! Which is perfect timing since we're having a big birthday party for Fred on the 10th. I love giving myself a reason to get shit done.

Speaking of getting shit done, I need to order a cake!

Waaaaah. I want a new kitchen!!!!! Niiice choice on the splashback. Hadn't seen tiles like that before. Everyone here is having glass or mosaic tile splashbacks....

What a beautiful transformation! Everything looked new and changed. The cabinets, countertop, and backsplash are all beautiful. I like how the colors matched pretty nicely. Have you finished the pantry wall? I’d love to see it too.

I think it’s a smart decision that you opted for a tile backsplash for the stove. It doesn’t seem appropriate if it was stainless. The tile complements the countertop and the cabinets pretty well. I guess, it’s a job well done! ->Randell Jeffries

It wasn’t a bad decision that you opted for tile for the stove backsplash. It appears perfect because it came out well together, along with the rest of the backsplash. It couldn’t be as good as this if you chose the stainless. Congrats on your new kitchen look! ->Elements Home Remodeling
