The granite counter tops are in!!! Here are some photos with the new cabinets (still need to get the backsplash in):
Some close-up photos of the granite. I love it!
We still have to get the glass tile backsplash up. We had a sample of the white glass tile backsplash, but I didn't like how it looked, it was too stark white with the granite. We just need a color that is closer to the color of the granite, an off-white or cream, which shouldn't be a problem. There is still much work to do, but we have come a long way. Take a look at some before shots of the kitchen:
Here is a picture of the kitchen after Mr. Bear tore out the wall joining the dining room and kitchen.
