Kitchen Remodel - The Countertop

Just to remind you, here is the kitchen sans counter:

And, now voila!

Tomorrow, the plumber comes to connect the faucets, dishwasher line, and the range top!  Yay!

Here is a close up of the molded sink... I love it!  All one smooth piece!

Here is a comparison of the other side, where the cat food was before, and now after:

 

Same cat... nicer cabinets and counter!  LOL

The counter looks very grey, but it has a lot of brown specks in it, too.  Here it is the swatch:

Still a lot to do, of course, the backsplash still has to be tiled, and the floor done, and the striped wallpaper area stripped and painted, but it is getting there!  I can't wait to have a sink, dishwasher, and range top again!  YAY!

Don't ya love the little scotch tape on the window screen?  Yeah, still waiting for the patch to be done by Hubby... I think for about 3 years now!  LOL  Now, he will have to do it!  Hee hee hee

More tomorrow!

be well,
Dawn

Oh it'scoming along great...love the counter tops.  Upscaling the cat thingy too...or is that so the dog doesn't get the cat food? I always had a problem with my gonnif dogs going for the cat's food too after scoffing their own! When its done you are going to have to cook something great as a way of breaking in the new kitchen...love, Sandi

The counter top looks great.  I have a tile counter top and back slash and I hate it.  It's so hard to keep clean.

Beautiful, when (IF) we ever remodel our kitchen it is going to have the molded sink too.  I love the color of the countertop.  Love the cat getting in on the act of the before & afters!! LOL
