John and Alice's Kitchen

It’s Granite Day!

Last Updated on December 26, 2015 by Kristi Linauer

Oh, happy day!  It’s granite day at John & Alice’s house!!  I’m so excited to see those countertops installed.  We’ve already made huge strides in updating this kitchen…

The cabinets…painted.  The backsplash…gone.  The laminate countertops…outta there.

Aaahhhh…isn’t the white like a breath of fresh air?  I love how light and bright it is, especially compared to the heavy, orange-brown oak that it used to be.

So today, the granite goes in.  Tomorrow, the backsplash goes in.  Thursday, the plumbing goes in.  I love progress!!

I’m hoping to post a few sneak peek pics at some point today over on the A2D Facebook page.  So keep an eye out!  And if you haven’t already, then come join us!

    That's going to look really nice. I like the white up top/gray down below paint scheme on the cabs.

    The cabinets are SO much better! Out of curiosity, when you tear up tile like you did on the backsplash and the condition of it is what it is in the photo in this post – what do you do to prepare that surface before laying more tile? Sand it down? Putty it up? I'm not saying my entire kitchen floor is in that state right now, but… It might be.
