We opted to tile the wall from floor to ceiling. LOVE it! The tile is a honed marble subway tile. I found a great deal through The Builder Depot. I did a lot of research. I mean, to the point that I was annoying the heck out of hubs, ha! He pretty much told me to do what I thought was best (uh, ok, right on, if you insist, haha)! They had the best looking product for the best price, even including shipping from Georgia to Oregon. It was a little scary ordering without seeing it, but they do have free samples, so that's a good route to go before placing the big order.
The sink. What can I say. Well, honestly, I love the way it looks, but am not super happy with the function. I'm not sure if it's the faucet I picked out or the sink being undermount, but I am constantly cleaning up water that has splashed up on to the counter. We have very hard water here, so it's a constant battle and it's just a little frustrating that we can't seem to keep the water in the sink where it belongs. I am contemplating a different type of faucet, thinking that might help cut down on the splash. I'll let you know down the road where that goes. She sure does look beautiful, though, right!?!
The paint color for the bottom cabs is Sherwin Williams Tidewater. The uppers is a Benjamin Moore color called Cloud White. We contracted this job out to a very dear friend of my mom's. Her name is Linda and she is a spitfire!! Extremely likable, very funny and a very skilled painter. I would love to be able to say it was all me, but I knew there was no way I could handle that job on top of everything else. She did a great job and I am very happy I didn't have to deal with it myself, ha!
