85% Complete!

Ok, so the kitchen is like 85% done now….

This is what is looked like when I got home last night…..

These are shots partially done with today….

And this is what it looks like right now….. The woods sticking up are just bracings holding the back splash tight against the wall while the “Liquid Nails” dries, they are not permanent.

This is a close up of my counter top….. “Butterum Granite”

So…. tomorrow I will finish up the sanding of the areas I had to joint compound, and then try to get some of it painted and probably work on the lights a little. I have 6 small recessed lights that will be going into the ceiling and that hideous light in the middle will be coming out, I am putting a ceiling fan in there and then gonna get a hanging light fixture of some sort to go over the sink…. I will also be putting in the sink tomorrow, and hooking up the plumbing for that – FUN!

Any suggestions are welcome, I am not totally sure what to do for a back splash under the upper cabinets, laminate, tile, or just paint… it is up in the air right now and will just be primed and painted in a nice white color.

This really is like the coolest thing I have done so far!!

Now for the rest of the rooms………
