The Counter-Top Saga

It is a rainy morning here in Paducah -- all the better to enjoying the smell of banana bread cooking. I have got this in the oven to share with our favorite contractor Ron. He has been really great to work with and this week he is getting in the new countertops, backsplash and lighting --- and, it is a holiday wish come true for me.

I thought I would share a little of the day, by day changes.
before Ron's arrival
this is the before of the center isle countertop -- this cook top will soon be a thing of the past
see, GONE! this was the end of day 1 - demo and framing done
this is just a closer look at the tile we selected
here's the end of day 2 -- all ready for tile installation on the counters by the stove and the backsplash
This is how it looks this morning --- beginning of day 3... stay posted for more updates.


  1. I am so enjoying watching your dream home become a reality! Thanks for sharing.

  2. yay Val -- isn't fun that you get to watch along as it happens -- love the internet! miss you! looks like it's colder there than it is least at the moment

  3. Beautiful tile, I really like the before and after. The kitchen is coming along nicely. I can't wait until it is finished!

  4. Are you staying with the yellow paint?

  5. the yellow paint is new and definitely staying Jann -- the day is seeing the completion of the tile-- just the grouting will remain and installation of new lighting

  6. I love the counter tops! They are awesome.
