week 5 & 5.5

May 1st, 2013 at 03:17 am

Week 5 on the kitchen remodel was a bit slow - just the lighting was installed and the appliances were delivered.

Lights .... I think I will call them my War of the Worlds lights due to their tripod nature.

This weekend, I did a recon mission on a couple of tile stores. Score - I love to work with vitreous glass and I finally found a place in Seattle that has a lot of colors. That, and other tile samples were what I picked up along the way. Couldn't make many final decisions until I see the countertops.

I throw out week 5.5 because yesterday (my 51st birthday!) the contractor installed the countertops, (I also showed the undercabinet lighting here) -

And today, the sink and faucet were fully installed (also a good shot at the countertop pattern)-

Dang that flooring guy!

    Gorgeous faucet, it's like kitchen jewellery; what will you choose for backsplash?

    Looking Great!
    Happy Birthday too. Smile
    I think the yellow toned tiles would look sharp with that countertop.

    Happy belated birthday! V.I. looked so cute investigating the wall of boxes. Your place looks very good but you were always good with design.
