Pulls Installed

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!

First batch of tile up!

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

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.
