Pulls Installed

Written by
This past Sunday, I was able to get motivated, get to Home Deport and purchase my pulls. I decided to go with all the same for the doors and the cabinets. There seem to be several schools of thought on knobs vs pulls, but I decided I liked the pulls approach, plus they don't loosen over time like knobs can. I got a dark black with a hint of bronze on the tips. In actuality, they match my faucet exactly!

Still no Facebook

Written by
About 2 weeks ago I decided to get off social media. I did this a couple of years ago after my last break up to clear my head and avoid seeing images and comments from my ex. This year I decided to exit Facebook mainly because I can't get all of the negativity from the political posts, angry comments on bad drivers and just all the noise. Not to mention that advertising has just about taken over social media and I just can't deal with it. Funny thing is I feel less stressed and am enjoying my lack of knowing what is going on in the world so much and all that my friends are up to. Yea. It has caused me to have to email and text my friends more and god forbid call them! But this is all good! I can think clearer, not feel overwhelmed and only seek out information when I need it. Will I get back on? I dont know? So far I am managing ok without it and I think that crick in my neck has gone away too!

Backsplash finally up!

Written by
Finally! I have the stainless steel subway tile installed and grouted! Quite a job but it is done! For you wondering, I used a silver unsanded grout for the tile. In addition, if you decide to do this job, be sure to use a blade to cut porcelain tile. My old blade was haveing a tough time cutting the stainless steel. Also, I mixed the sealer with the grout in one step to take care of the sealing as well. Pretty snazzy! I big thank you to Jen Pierce at the Floor and Decore store in The Colony for her help in getting the parts together! Now to get the electrical hooked back up and get those under counter lights in!

First batch of tile up!

Written by
So continuing with my home remodel... I decided to focus getting my backsplash up this weekend. Being that this was Superbowl Sunday, of course I had to have the game on too! As exciting as the matchup of New England and Atlanta was, installing my brand new stainless steel subway tile had all my attention, well until Lady GaGa at half time! ;-) Ok, well enough of that, here is a shot of the kitchen from the first wall install. I still need to grout but will wait to do that once I have the wall over the stove done. Looking snazzy!

Kitchen Madness - Backsplash Install

Written by
Well, I'm still working on my kitchen remodel. I started it Christmas week 2016 and pretty much worked on it non-stop for 10 days. I removed everything from the kitchen and then installed new cabinets I built, new appliances, sink and everything in between. The floor was tiled by me a couple years ago when I tiled the whole house with the wood looking porcelain tile. Other than that, I kept the fridge and tossed the rest. So this weekend I'm going to install a new backsplash that will be made from Stainless Steel subway tile. I'm really hoping it will look cool! Then after that, I need to grout the tile, then do some touch-up grouting on the floor where the cabinets didn't fit exactly in the same location of the old ones and then add dome kick plate and under counter lighting.

My New Kitchen Countertops

Written by
So during my week off from work between Christmas to New Years of 2017, I decided this would be a great time to begin my kitchen remodel. Oh YAY! This is a sample of Granite that the counter guy brought with him and I decided to go with. I have to say, its one of the nicest looking pieces of stone I have ever see! It has striations in the stone that have all the same colors of my floor, cabinets and soon to be back-splash. I especially like the cracks all through it. Ill post a picture soon with the counter top in place, he will be installing it on Wednesday! :-)Who Actually Clicks on Banner Ads?
