A long anticipated kitchen reno is underway ...
First came the new stove and now the new
countertops have been put into place.
|The dishwasher needs to come out and the old counter top is being unfastened.|
Within a couple of hours the new counter top (granite) was carefully set into place
by expert installers.
They came a few weeks earlier to measure with a precise laser machine thing and
everything was cut perfectly, including the exact holes for the taps and sink.
It's called Titanium granite and has some beautiful quartz marbling throughout.
The leathered finish on the stone gives it a beautiful look and we can't stop "petting" it!
|My lowered Baker's counter (cause I'm short - smile)|
A few more additions are being built this week,
an island to replace the harvest table,
and a chimney cupboard for storage
(ironic since I really should be getting rid of some things and need "less" storage - sigh).
In the meantime we are putting on a fresh coat of paint,
deciding on a light fixture for above the island,
and picking out some back splash tile.
Still lots to be done ... stay tuned.
Wanted to share a Cubano sandwich I was inspired to make after reading about
it here on That Skinny Chick Can Bake. I love her blog!
I even managed to find a Cuban bread recipe that I had to try.
Must be because I had new counter tops to play on that I took the time to make this.
It was delicious - I will be looking for this sandwich on the menu
when we head South this winter!
Our little love is sick with a bad cold this week.
She is such a little darling and manages to keep a good attitude even when sick...
Love her so much!
Till next time ..... stay healthy and warm.
