#1086 kitchen reno day 3

MT made good progress on the counters today! Look at this:

He's got a corner section all made! Doesn't it look good?! He says he's going to make some kind of 45 degree angle on the edges all around.

I think it looks good now, but he says it will look better with the edging.

He built this one and put the formica on it in the garage, but the next pieces are too big, so he will glue the formica on in place (in the kitchen). The glue smells awful. I guess we'll go out for dinner tomorrow if the smell is too unbearable.

Take a look at the counter tops that he built. See that edge? Doesn't it look good?

MT says that tomorrow he will go buy the sink and the new garbage disposal in addition to putting on formica. Sounds like a busy day.

Coming right along!

We were talking tonight about painting the cabinets white and putting handles on them. We think it would look nice and update the kitchen a little more. What do you think?

I'm excited for the backsplash, too. We'll probably go pick out the tile this weekend. We've looked at tiles before and I had some picked out, but those tiles would go well with the black counter tops.

In other news, it snowed here most of the day. The snow and cold and overall wintery-ness really has me dreaming of tropical places. Key West, Cozumel, Turks & Caicos...I'm yearning to go somewhere with white sand beaches and free flowing pina coladas. Better keep saving my money so I can make that vacation dream a reality.

The top looks fantastic! I love that kind and I really think that white cabinets would go so well to that.
It will transform your kitchen I think to a very much lighter room.
I have white cabinets, a red tile and black tops (which you probably have seen on photos)
When we did our kitchen I think the hardest to choose was tiles actually.
I really like to see the progress in your kitchen :-)
