Boomerang






Guess what I got today! Finally!!! I got my counter tops installed! Now I just have to figure out what to do about the back splash?? I was going to tile but I'm debating about doing a metal stainless back splash similar to what I put up to cover the crappy tile that was there before! I kinda liked it.





You can see in the picture above, I mocked up the old metal back splash that had been covering my tile before I did demo. It would be easy and cheap to just throw up a metal back splash for now until I get time to tile? I have so much work to do to get my kitchen back to functional and clean!

  3. ooh! I love how you got the stainless edging, my folks' kitchen had that and it was great for stopping spills. Didn't know that was still an option, we're in dire need of new counters here at the Hacienda, but we need to do a lot of work on many other things so fun stuff like that will have to wait. Glad to know they still do that! Looks beautiful!

  8. Here are ideas for tile mural installations , tips on framing the tiles and using field tiles to coordinate with the mural.. Considering the use of found vintage labels and a great way to showcase retro art.

  11. Natalie....I went with a local wood working company to make my counter tops! Cheaper then going with Lowe's or an actual counter top company. I told them what I wanted, how I wanted it, and how I wanted it done! They did it and at a really good price too!
