We have now completed phases 2 & 3 of our remodel. 1- Granite counter tops which we had installed, and 2- a new slate back splash that was a DIY job. (Mostly by my He-man hubby!) Like most of you out there in the real world, we are on a budget and like to use cash for major purchases. For that reason we do still have all of our old appliances, though we might phase them out over time.
Here she is BEFORE. (Yes my kitchen is a "she" because in a house full of boys I need some company!)
Here are some shots during the back splash INSTALL PICTURES. The old tile was white and the forest green color that was popular back in 1999. We went with slate instead of travertine. The color is called Mongolian desert that we felt went with our new granite called Taboo.
And (sigh of happiness) AFTER:
It was definitely worth the 9 month wait!
We are linking up with our girl Kimba over at A Soft Place To Land for her weekly DIY party!
