Kitchen Reno Day Eighteen



The backsplash went on today!
Kris said he was going to see dots all evenings. ha.  Poor guy.
The white grout will go on later this week!
I'm liking it!

  1. I hope that all those little tiles came on that mesh stuff so that they didn't have to be stuck on one at a time! That would have been exhausting otherwise. Looking good though! xx

  2. It's looking good, and I see Marmalade had to get into the picture! What do the boys think of it all?

  4. It all looks great. You have so room on your countertops. That must be really handy when you have a big family meal or when you are filling a lot of basket orders. The new kitchen will be a nice place to work with all of the space and those big windows to look out of. I really like it!

    1. I've always loved those big windows...lots of light and views! And I'm still not used to all that counter space! It's wonderful!

  5. the thing that I love today in your photos is the golden color of your lighted cabinets, with golden brought down to the island and cutting board, then the golden color of the inside of the card board box and then brought further down by the golden orange of the cat, , oh I forgot this kitty's name, but for me the colors you chose are beautiful, it looks like a magazine layout,

    1. Too many dots for you?
      I did it to drive you cuckoo.
      haha.
      Marmy worked up quite an appetite
      after walking the roof all night. :)

    2. lol I'd stare if it was at my lair
      And might drive me crazier without a care

      Delete
    3. crazier is the key word
      as you've just admitted you're already absurd.
      haha.

      Delete
    4. Absurd is more fun though
      To give a go

  13. Really beautiful. I love it! The cabinets, the countertops and backsplash.
    But I have to say, You've totally surprised me with this makeover in going outside the so-called traditional box.
    Have you surprised yourself?

    1. Yes...most definitely! Every time we picked something out, I'd say,"This is not anything like what I had envisioned in my mind!" haha.
      I even said it tonight! I had a casual, farmhouse, kind of kitchen in my mind...open shelving, very relaxed. I absolutely love how it's turning out, but nobody is more surprised than me! lol....

  14. Very nice job! I want that kitchen! My son does the same when he comes home..he notices everything, he is very curious.

    1. I love that they notice and are curious. It's easy to think they don't see or care...and when they do, it makes me smile. :)

    2. I get that! It makes me smile too.

  15. Yes, I can understand his seeing dots. :)

  16. I see Marmalade has managed to sneak into both photos - ha! He loves the spotlight. Love all the finishing touches. Yes, I also love the look of a farmhouse kitchen... one of my favourites, so it would be a toss-up for me, I think. But yours looks so very polished and beautiful that I might just have to have TWO kitchens! Isn't it interesting what we end up with - love that it surprised you.
