Well, we have finally made the decision
to have granite installed in the kitchen!
Meaning that prior to vacation I spent an afternoon
hunting down the "perfect" granite
at the more important "perfect" price.
I am very, very frugal!
Imagine my surprise when God lead me to a
local granite fabricator, who just happened to have
enough opps/ remnant of our first choice granite
at an unbelievable price!
(They had just bought several slabs of "my" granite
that had cracked straight down the middle during shipping.
Meaning that we got a fabulous deal!)
Now here is where the fun starts...
When we built the home 6 years ago, we had the option
of installing a high breakfast bar, or creating a low one.
After much debate, we went with the high one...
which in the end,
turned out to be too high.
So with the on set of new counters...
down comes the high bar!
Wayne starting the deconstruction process!
Off comes the corbels...
Off comes the counter top!
Finally we deconstruct the wall till it is even with
the existing counter!
The gentleman from the counter top place came
yesterday afternoon to take measurements for
the new counters!
They are set to be installed on September 8th!
Which means our next project is selecting
and installing a back splash.
I've picked out paint for the office, now I just
need the motivation to paint!
