In case you didn't know, we bought a bank owned home and moved in almost 2 months ago. It's a little tricky trying to get everything done AND be parents at the same time, which is why we're so thankful for family and friends helping! We've had TONS of help! Today Bruce and Kathy (in-laws) were here specifically to help tile the countertops. Well it took longer than Bruce had anticipated, and we're not done grouting and installing faucets. The cabinets will eventually be painted cream (possible with a glazish thing on top of that) and I'm not done with the dark brown walls, but check it out! I LOVE it!
As you can see, we're cheap skates. We got a bid for granite @ about $1800 installed... not bad, but you're still looking at buying a sink and faucet in addition. Just so ya know we got EVERYTHING (cast iron sink and faucet included) for well BELOW 1/2 that! YAY!
