Good day ! Immediately’s the day to share pictures of the kitchen remodel with all of you! I’ve written about the course of a number of instances before and I partnered with Cliq Studios utilizing their cupboards to jump start this transform.

Oh my gosh Michelle, I LOVE your kitchen!! The nook with the benches is awesome, I feel like I could spend an entire Saturday there, with some tea and breakfast, only to linger there with a e-book. Additionally, I beamed with pleasure when I noticed your baking station! The principle counter I bake on is correct subsequent to the range (it is the one flat floor with no tile), which implies a) I have to share it with my housemates after they need to prep gadgets to cook, and b) there is not any plug near that counter at all! Your baking station is a dream!

Second, you will have to bolster any overhangs you’ve on islands or breakfast bars. The very last thing you want is to have your new tiles cracking or popping free. Then you have to lay cement backer board for any tiling venture. After talking with a nice man at Lowe’s, I decided to lay my backer board proper on prime of the previous countertop. You won’t be able to do that if your counter has a contoured edge or a build in backsplash ledge. Your outdated surface should be utterly smooth and degree and securely attached to the substrate.

My guys saved a fairly clean jobsite (except for that black grime that stored displaying up in my shower… what WAS that, guys?) but there was nonetheless numerous dusty foot site visitors and basic grubby hands all up in my ranch and ew. Presumably blood too. All that was cleaned up before I received home but when CSI ever comes to my home I wager I am fucked. Cause #98398429384 why this weblog is awesome: it’s an alibi.
