Kitchen- last project before the wedding!

All right, I went on and on about how we were working to finish tiling the kitchen to go with the new, beautiful granite countertops..but never posted pictures of the completed HARD work :) But instead of just showing you the after....I think showing you the before first makes quite the impact. While our kitchen hasn't looked like what you're about to see since the weekend after we moved in (that was my first room that I insisted we rip all the wall paper down because it was HIDEOUS). But here are a few shots of the day we moved in....

And here my friends, is the after :) With new countertops, new hardware on the cabinets, and of course....a new tile floor!!!

Ta-da! And of course, new appliances are on the "want" list....but the ones we have are functioning just fine, so we will use them until they die! Haha, if only the process of getting it like that was as easy as saying ta-da! However, it was fully worth the hard work and extra effort that Jimmy and my dad put in. Jimmy willingly gave up TWO whole weekends to complete this project. I kind of did too, but cheated one night to go out and celebrate Sarah's birthday. So yeah Jimmy!!

Anyway...that will be the last house project (big or small) before April 10. I have daily mini-nightmares because the wedding is creeping all the focus will be going to completing the large list of wedding to-do. Bring it on!!!


  1. Wow - what huge, beautiful tile! Curious if Jimmy enjoyed tiling. Andrew did the small space in our family room where we tore down an ugly cabinet and swears he will never do it again. Haha.

  2. Hey yo! I would say that Jimmy did not enjoy any of the tiling he has done (the whole master bathroom or the kitchen floor), but he did have some good tips from a friend that is good at it, so it wasn't that bad. He and my dad laid them all down and then Jimmy & I did the grout stuff. However, saved us a LOT of money by him doing it, so I will now call him an "expert" tile guy. Haha!!
