phase one (countertops & sink) is now complete. we are very pleased with how it turned out. i do have to say, i was more excited about a new sink than i was the granite countertops. i've gone from a 6.5" and 6.5" deep sink to a 8" and 10" deep. not to mention, the finish was completely worn off from the last sink, so it absorbed stains before you ever had the chance to rinse it.
now don't you think that oven/stove is hideous? i think maybe it needs replacing.. it just doesn't belong. it's amazing how one thing leads to another. unfortunately, i think it will have to wait. what do you know, just this week colby's phone went capoot, and our dishwasher has stopped draining. so we have a couple of other more pressing expenses we will need to take care of first.
phase two (backsplash) is in progress. we've started removing some of the tile from our current backsplash. we hope to have the new backsplash installed by the end of the month!
