I'm so excited to share the finished product with you now that my kitchen is almost complete! It took about 3 long days to get this project done but I'm very happy with it and wish I had done it sooner.
We started out removing the old beige tumbled tile off the wall on Sunday.
Then, on Monday, a friend of ours installed the tile.
The tile adhesive had to set overnight. So, I waited patiently until Tuesday afternoon to get it grouted!
We used glossy white 3x6 tiles from Lowes and warm grey grout.
In this picture, I haven't yet done the final polishing of the tiles since the grout has to set another 24 hrs! Ugh! So, it will be shinier and cleaner when I do that. But I wanted to go ahead and show you what it looks like anyway.
Here is the new kitchen!
I could've gone darker with the grout but I played it safe with a light grey. I was afraid of it looking too busy in a small cooking space.
Now, the only thing left to do to our kitchen is to replace our scratched up sink with a stainless steel undermount. We have to find one in the same shape. That is what is holding us up. It's not a standard shape sink.
I smile every time I come in to this room now. It feels like I'm in someone else's kitchen!
I wanted a classic, functional, yet stylish kitchen and I think I finally achieved that.
I hope that you all have a great weekend. It is supposed to be in the high 60's and sunny here all weekend. Can't wait!
