We were amazed to find out that the electrical box behind the old light fixture wasn't centered....I couldn't believe it. So what should have been a very quick job actually ended up being a more time consuming project... at least it's done now!!
We Put in new lights in all 3 bathrooms, the Living Room, Family Room, Laundry Room, Hall....I'm excited, because we are going all Brushed Nickel and the Lights have two bulbs in it rather than one. It's so much lighter now! I love it!!
I don't know what it is about new Knobs and Doorknobs, but I think they made a big difference.
I Love it!!! Thanks LeGrand!! You did an awesome job, you put sweat and blood into this project.
My favorite part of the tiling project (besides laughing with Kathryn) was doing this Mosaic section. You can buy strips of tiles in a design, but they were about $10.00 for a 6-8 inch section and didn't want to spend that much, so I just made my own. I took some tiles and dropped them so they broke into pieces, then I hit them with a hammer to get the pieces a little bit smaller....it was fun. Then it was just like putting a puzzle together. It was fun doing it and it's my favorite part of the finished product too!!
OK, here is the kitchen... Here's a picture of the backer board on the counter tops.. you do have to put the backer board on the edge too, it just wasn't up yet in the picture. You don't have to put backer board on the wall unless you are doing tiles that are like 16x16...
What a mess!!!
The dry run....and I guess I got so busy with it that I forgot to take more pictures of the process of the kitchen, but I think you get the idea....
The finished Kitchen!!!
I'm so excited with the way that this turned out!! I'm so excited that it's done and to have a sink, dishwasher and oven again is amazing!!
