Finally....

we've lived here in our Home
since Aug. 2000!
We've literally hated our kitchen counter tops
that long!
We disliked our appliances at the time as well.
So we have gradually,
as budget would allow
replaced all of those.


 This is what we have lived with for the past....
almost 12 yrs.  White, textured, wood trimmed....
VERY hard to keep clean!!!
 We stumbled upon a 
GREAT deal that we just couldn't pass up.
And the time was right....
budget wise.  
So we finally did it!
 We got granite!

Now I know that there is much discussion in blogland
to granite or not....
is granite IN
OR
is it OUT?

 Well, for us....
It is DEFINITELY in....

 and we couldn't be happier....
Or more PROUD!
Because we did it ourselves!
 LOVE
love this....
Sorry, but I we Do!

Would you rather have this....
textured...
white...
dated...
hard to clean... 
laminent...

OR....

This....
brown, black granite!
Installed by yourselves....
saving all of that money?
Either way....
we love it and are very
proud and feel very 
fortunate that we
Finally....
were able to afford what we wanted!
(I should add here that if you have a Menard's in your area, check the kitchen & bath sale ad)
Next up....
back splash!

  1. Very nice improvement! You two did a great job...very impressive.

    (I hate my countertops, too, and rarely show them. They are, however, just like Susan Branch's so they've come an eighth of a notch. Ha!)

  2. I can't wait to read more about this new improvement. They are beautiful. I want some granite too. We were even looking at that granite countertop in a box but I really don't want to deal with lots of 12x12's

    1. I can't imagine doing this in 12x12's either. We got a great deal on solid pieces of granite. We had to do the cutting and the lifting and the installing! But, we are very pleased with how it turned out!
