I know you’ve been waiting impatiently to see how the kitchen project is coming along. Ha ha! But although it seems like I’ve been making coffee in the bathroom forever, it’s only been since last month. Now that it’s finally coming along, I’m loving it. We had a major glitch after the granite went in. The backsplash we bought a couple of years ago just didn’t look right with it.
We both adore the backsplash. But there was no way of making it work. So I started my hunt for a new backsplash. Absolutely nothing appealed to me …well let me rephrase that …everything appealed to me — it just wouldn’t go with the granite on the countertops or the cabinets.
I began my hunt online and found something I thought might work. I liked the texture of it, and I figured I could find the color to go with what we had. Later that day when my husband came home from work, we made a trip out to the tile store. The last row, the last aisle, in the back corner, they had just brought in a new display and, as we looked at it, we both said yes, that’s what we’re looking for.
Look at that texture, look at the colors. It’s all natural stone, rocks my favorite things. I get to stare at the details, search the crystals, look inside the little tiny geodes. Every little space is a world in itself. I can go exploring on the backsplash in the kitchen while I’m washing dishes.
Nope. The kitchen is not done yet. But at least that one wall is finished. We still have one to go. Then it’s the challenge of that pass through over the sink. We may need ideas, and are certainly going to need help. The granite slab is sitting here in my family room waiting to get installed.
