You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Hope you have recovered from the Super Bowl. Lots of excitement and lots of food. Did your team win?  Now on to this month's next excitement - the Winter Olympics. I must admit that I am more excited about the Olympics than I was about the Super Bowl. 

We have some wonderful "Creative" features for you. Check them out and then link up your fabulous posts.

Kitchen Makeover - Part 3

This is the third part of my kitchen remodel. This week the granite counter tops are installed. I was so excited for this part. I have wanted to have white cabinets and black counter tops for some time and it is finally coming to fruition. In Kitchen Makeover Part 1 we painted the cabinets and installed new flooring. In Kitchen Makeover Part 2 we installed new appliances and some other details.

It is amazing how fast the guys were able to take out the old counter tops and start to put the new ones in. 
Everything was going well until it was time to put in the granite with the sink. They didn't measure it correctly so one place was off a little. What else can go wrong in this remodel? 

Calls to the main office and moving and adjusting and more adjusting but still a small gap. Will the back splash cover it? Can we make it work? 

My husband seems to think so, in goes the granite.  I love the look. (there is that one spot) We are probably the only ones that would let something like this go. Would you have had it redone? Part of me wishes yes!

I granite cost us $2500 which included installation, 60/40 sink and Delta faucet with shield spray techcnology. We had 45 square feet of  granite installed and for this area that is really good.

Now that the granite is in, we only have to install the back splash and fix a few places that got damaged from the counter tops.

They had this desk in the kitchen and I so wanted to take it out, but couldn't decided what to put in its place so it stayed. When we purchased the house there was a cabinet above the desk closing in the kitchen. That cabinet was the first thing to come out.

I have two large pantry cupboards on either side and wanted them so I left it all.

It is getting close to being done and I am so glad.
