The Kitchen Makeover

The Kitchen Makeover

I have some really great and excited news to share today……I’m finally getting granite counter tops in the Kitchen!!!  This is a really big, big deal for me…. I wanted granite when we had the house build….but at that time the budget allowance for the kitchen would not allow me to purchase granite……So for 17 years I have been dreaming of granite counters and my dream is finally coming true….

There was so many different granite slabs to choose from…..but me and my hubby knew this was the one when we first laid eyes on it…..

Giallo Napole is the name of the granite….it should go nicely with our cherry stained cabinets….

and the back splash is going to be Travertine 4 x 4 squares…..

I’m saying goodbye to the white and grey specked Corian Counters along with white ceramic tile as the backsplash…..It has served me well…….

and goodbye to this wooded top corner desk…..

the plan is to place granite on top of this desk and make it a tab larger along with the traventine back splash instead of the green wallpaper…..the wallpaper is on it’s way out the door too….but that’s for another day……

this is a bad catch all spot in my kitchen right now….hoping the granite will make it look like it’s a part of the kitchen counter space instead of a separate desk……

and I’m going to have to find another place other than the kitchen for my catch all spot…..

the plan for the island is to make it 5 inches longer in length….giving me a little more cooking and serving space……

my hubby really likes the idea of more cooking space….  🙂

See this…..this is my Jenn Air Cooktop…….I have cooked and served a lot of friends and family around this area…..Thank you Miss Jenn Air…..you have been faithful over the years….hate to see you go…..but after 17 years of harsh labor…..with little vacation time….it’s time for you to rest….. and time for me to move on to the latest and greatest stove top model….

No photos yet of the new stove top…..it’s still in the box…… waiting …

This area is in between my stove/microwave and refrigerator.  Mr. Coffee will sit here once again when all the upgrades are completed.

Now onto the worst part of the whole kitchen…….The sink area……it’s a mess…..the porcelain sink started chipping in the back behind the facet a long time ago…it’s been repaired….then starting chipping again…..been repaired…..and now it is a big eye sore…..along with the facet leaking and chipping also…..I did have a close up of  this…..but decided I was too embarrass to post the picture….It looked really nasty…….so with all that said….I’m getting a stainless steel sink…..a stainless steel  facet with the sprayer on the end of the facet……no more chipping porcelain sink…..no more chipping, leaky  facet…..

I do believe I feel a happy dance coming on……..

Now onto the bar area……

We are having the granite cut 3 inches wider for the bar ….this should help to enlarge the area …….making my kitchen look larger….along with adding enough space on top to comfortably eat at it……

I was told to remove everything from under the cabinets before the installers show up tomorrow…..
