Hi Friends! I hope everyone is having an enjoyable holiday weekend so far! We have been busy around here trying to finish up a bunch of projects. Why is it always a never-ending list? Ha! Well, at least it keeps us busy.
The kitchen renovation is chugging along. This week we had Samuel with Restoration Counseling in to fix-up our peninsula. He did a wonderful job on the sink surround so we decided we would have him take care of this project, as well. This is probably a task that hubs and I could have tackled, but we wanted a real craftsman to work on this since it's one of the focal points of the kitchen. I really wanted this area to be better defined and stand out on its own. I showed him a picture on Houzz that was exactly what I wanted and he did it perfectly! Here are a few photos.
Hey Guys! I hope you all had a great week! We've been pretty busy, running here and there and trying to work our schedules around workers coming in and out of the house. This past week was both exhausting and exciting. The counters are in! WooHoooo! They look SO good. I have to tell you, I was really nervous. I picked them out from a 5" square sample and I didn't see the slab. Probably not the smartest way to go, but I lucked out! Not before I frantically searched the web to find pictures of full slabs of what I picked, haha!
So here is where we started the week:
Here is the slab for the peninsula coming in:
I chose this Quartz product after doing a lot of research on different options. Hubs is the cook in the family and an amazing chef he is. However, he is pretty tough on things, so I knew we needed a stain/heat/cut/hubs resistant product. I LOVE the look of marble, but I knew I would go crazy living with the marble patina. Etching and staining is just not something I wanted to deal with. There are multiple quartz products out there with a marble look. This one is from Cosmos Granite & Marble and is called Venato Extra CQ 3cm.
