Kitchen Remodel...Part 1

It's really going to happen...I'm getting new granite counter tops tomorrow morning...yippee!!!! I have been dreaming of new counter tops for years and tomorrow my dream will come true. My counter tops are 23 years old...oh my...way too old! I would have gotten some new ones earlier but we were planning on selling this house and move full time to our house at the beach...plans changed...we sold the house at the beach and now we are living here full time...so new counter tops it is! My sweet sweet hubby has been removing the old counter tops and doing a wonderful job...I might say...we decided to lower the bar to cabinet height to give us more counter space and open up the kitchen a little more...I can't believe how much open it now looks...we both love it. Tomorrow I will have new granite counter tops...new sink...new faucet (I really splurged on this...can't wait to see it in place) so I hope with all my excitement that I will be able to sleep tonight...I probably will have a dream that we are all finished with the entire project...one can dream...can't they? Saturday the paint brushes and rollers come out...painting here we come! We will be painting the kitchen and upper walls in the morning room chocolate brown...anybody have a great chocolate brown color you want to share?...lower half in the morning room will be white beadboard. I sure hope we don't get too busy with the kitchen and forget to watch our big game Saturday night...us forget...not a chance...Go Tigers GO!!!!

You are going to love those granite tops.
I know I love mine!

I would be sooooooo excited too! The granite countertops are going to be awesome and I can't wait to see the brown and the white beadboard. You are going to make me want to do that too! We have white beadboard and a caramel color in our bathroom and I love it. In the future I may do it in other parts of the house. Good luck with all the work!

I just "stumbled" here and am glad I am getting to see your remodel. I know you will love the new counter tops--it's going to a mess, but worth it!

I can't wait to see it when it's done! I love chocolate brown and white together.

Oh, I am SO excited for you! :) You will be so happy with your new kitchen! New countertops with a new sink and faucet have a way of transforming a kitchen! And bead board is always beautiful! (Although as the main bead board installer in our kitchen right now, I will be very glad to finish with it!) I love how you lowered the counter to the level of your stove, it looks wonderful! I can't wait to see how it looks when you are finished with it! :)
