Kitchen Counter Re-do

One fine day we decided to re-do the countertops in the kitchen. We're still recovering from that decision, but here are some photos.

BEFORE

Notice the lovely cracked tiles on the front edge of the big counter, plus the oh-so-visible grout lines. These tiles were originally nubby, with many little bumps on them. We'd worn them off.



DURING





First countertop in: the littlest one.

Sink dropped in. This was the defective one, with the crack in the cast iron.

Countertops all in and waiting for the tile backsplashes. We sanded, spackled and painted the backsplash areas above the counters with our yellow, as the tiles wouldn't be as tall as the new subway stack.

AFTER


Oh yes, this is part of after. Genero installs the replacement sink.





YAY!
