Kitchen Update-Counter Tops!

This was our kitchen at 12:45 yesterday:

image

And this is our kitchen now:
image

image

Look at this awesome Fissure in the Granite!

image

image

This little section to the left of the (currently imaginary) fridge is pretty too!

image

This is the BEST Hubbin in the WHOLE world! He is installing the Corbels under the bar top.

image

image

image

Look at the burnt orange coloring in it!

image

And the GORGEOUS sink area!

image

The fissure there is AMAZING too!

We are still waiting on the installer to come back and put the cutlery insert and the roll outs in. Other than that, we have a backsplash to install this weekend along with the faucet to finish out the kitchen and the bead board in the bathroom….

Kitchen Cabinet update….

So, here are the cabinets

image

image

image

This is before the light rail was put it on Friday.

Now for the bad news…. It won’t be done for another six weeks at least.
That’s right, six weeks.

The base cabinet to the right is the wrong size.

image

It’s no ones fault, the computer program said there was enough room for the sink bump out with that size cabinet, but there really wasn’t.

On the bright side, the wall color, tile and cabinets look awesome!

image

UPDATE: The installer installed the pieces on either side of the sink (the ones that make it bump out) backward (the right was on the left and the left was on the right). When installed correctly there is enough room for the dishwasher with the current cabinet. :~)

Thank YOU to Sheri at Home Depot for figuring this out! :~) 

It will still be at least 5 weeks since they ordered us a new bottom and a new back for the sink cabinet since the holes for the plumbing and electrical will be all wrong with it moved over two inches. :~) Thank you HOM solutions for this! 

Kitchen update

Here is our pretty half wall!

image

And here is our kitchen all textured.

image

Isn’t it pretty? It looks SO much better than it used to!

image

We also started tiling and are about halfway done….
This was before last night.

image

And this is after last night….this is a whole bag of motor….we ran out so we had to stop for the night.

image

image

We need to finish it before Monday so they can install the cabinets.  🙂

Cabinets!

image

The cabinets came in yesterday! I’m still convinced they were supposed to be delivered to a carrier yesterday and us on the 27th, but I guess I will see if the carrier calls. 😉 Anyway, this is what our dining room looks like now…. Oh, and this is Baby Girl this morning!

Kitchen progress

image

image

I know it doesn’t look like much, but it is WAY better than it was on Friday! What’s left? Mud and tape the drywall (I’m not sure how much of this Hubbin got done after I left last night), texture the ceiling and walls, paint, fix the floor (lay down a new piece of board), and tile. I’m thinking its NOT getting done by the 4th of July….

New Favorite

This is my new favorite room….I LOVE the tile!

image

It went from this

image

Well, ok, we were going to use that tile, but changed our minds at the last second and look! It’s amazing! 

image

We thought it would be a four hour job at the most…turns out it was a ten hour job. This was after four hours…

image

image

But it is far better after ten hours….

image

Ah! Beautiful!
