Kitchen Counters Chosen

I went to the granite yard today and picked out my slab of granite. Yippee! I'm so excited!! You know how long we've been working on this kitchen! In case you don't know how long...we've been working on it on & off for over 1 year!! Not that it is a big kitchen at all. It's actually a small kitchen. It's just that hubby & I are doing it all ourselves and we haven't had much time between his regular job & running our business. I also didn't think we would be able to afford granite counters so was planning on butcher block counters. Thank the Lord we have been blessed with some extra money we didn't expect to have, so we are super excited to get granite! I chose New Venetian Gold.
Here is my precious slab of granite.

We have 2 weeks to finish painting the cabinets and build a pedestal for the breakfast nook. Oh, and I need to choose the backsplash. I'm leaning towards tumbled marble. I was going to do a mix of tumbled marble & beadboard, but hubby vetoed that idea. He would have had to move the outlets up higher and he didn't care to add more work to his already long honey do list. So, I better say goodbye for now and get back to painting!

Have a blessed day!

gorgeous granite! We're beginning a SLOW makeover of our kitchen -- starting with one counter, but it won't be granite; that has to wait!
Enjoy your new counter -- it's beautiful stone.


The granite is fantastic! I say, you were meant to have it : O ) We can't wait to see your project when it is finished.

Hey, Darlene, I love your granite too & looked at that one. It was a contender for sure, but we decided on the Napoli after staring at them for a long time. I've already got tumbled marble backsplash & had to get something that works with it.

I can't wait for Monday a.m. & demo will begin! And yes, I'll be doing Thrifty Monday parties as long as everyone wants to do them.
