So….back in the kitchen…..there was a terrible blue laminiate overlay on the original orange counter top. So after much deliberation I decided to go with another laminate from Lowe’s. It went perfectly with the colors I painted the cabinets.
HAHAHAHA!! You can see evidence of my wall color paint experiments all over! And the beer that I cracked as soon as the counter top was secured. Anywhoo…After the countertop was in, mister started working on getting the sink in. It is a Swanstone single bowl sink. And the faucet…swoon. I really had an inner debate as to what to use for the backsplash. Every house magazine or fancy home tour I went on, I kept seeing these super fancy glass tiles. I love them, but they are not for us…at least not in the kitchen (I am thinking bathroom). I settled on bead board…and right as we were measuring to put up….we made a last-minute change to put the boards up horizontally………
I still have quite a few finishing touches to do around the kitchen (and I will be sure to share)…but it feels so good to have the big projects out-of-the-way. Wait!! Did I just say that? Well…jinxed myself. Cause the more I look at the flooring the more I think it should be more of an industrial looking fifties style Armstrong vinyl tile…do you know what I am talking about?
And I will now leave you with another pic of the kitchen….sigh.
