So after the 10 day wait, the counters were installed on March 17. This is actually pretty quick. Perk of doing things in the off season!
And are they beautiful! They sparkle!
Then the next step was the backsplash. This was my make or break item. I knew I wanted it to be eye catching, but still neutral enough if we changed things up, it would still work. And it is blue, in honor of my Mom’s favorite color. We had to change the original choice of the tiles because we found out that the ceramic style was way over our budget. (Darn Italian designers.) Then I discovered the glass tile came in these small mosaic ones. Seeing this vision come to life has been incredible. And it just pops like i hoped it would!
It has been a bit since I posted but that is because it has taken a bit for the cabinets. That has been the next step in the process and it took longer than expected. I didn’t think people wanted to see 10 posts about cabinets, so I was just waiting until they were pretty much finished. One of our big corner lazy susan cabinets was damaged and had to be rebuilt, which slowed the whole process down.
On top of all that, I have been coordinating the upcoming benefit for my labor of love, Take Back the Night. This annual benefit is how we raise the money to put on the annual rally and march to raise awareness about sexual violence. Things have been a bit hectic. The exciting thing is the counters are being installed on Friday, March 17th!!! And the plan is to finish it all next week!
So without further adieu, here are some pictures of the cabinets.
