before and after

A few weeks ago, we had new granite put into our kitchen. It looks beautiful and we are very pleased with it. I still walk into the kitchen and am taken a back, thinking, "this isn't my kitchen!" But it is, and I'm getting more used to it. The granite is so much easier to clean than the tiles we had before, for which I am very thankful. You can't tell from these pictures, but the granite has a lot of green in it, speckled with black, gray, and light brown (about the color of the cabinets). The sink and faucet are new, too. I'm one lucky girl.

I have typical 60's ish small white tile countertops...just thing Veggie Tales in a color that used to be white.

it's so very frustrating to clean!!

I can't wait till the day comes when I no longer have grout in my kitchen! (no tile floors for me either for the same reason!)

They are lovely. In the new year I am going to get new counter tops and a new kitchen floor. I can hardly wait.

Did it storm there today. My nephew was having trouble getting out of Denver and heading to Vancouver Island. I don't think he is home yet.

New granite! very nice! It is just so much easier to take care of!! You will love it. Over the long run you'll wonder "Why did I wait so long to put this in?"
