The old counters were a blue grey Formica and now they're honed black granite.
We're going to be on a kitchen tour this Saturday and Sonny has been wanting to update the kitchen for a long while now.
It made quite a difference!
He installed beadboard on the wall from the counter to the bottom of the cupboards. Painted it the colonial red used in the rest of the room and I had him overlay it with black and wipe it off to leave it in the grooves of the beadboard.
Yesterday, I washed the bell jars that are in the breezeway and in the garden. The tour goers will exit through our courtyard garden so everything had to be spruced up! If you want to see the newspaper article, go to www.mansfieldnewsjournal.com and click on Life - that's the Lifestyle section. They did a really nice job with a great shot of the kitchen.
Last Saturday, grandson Luke turned 15. So hard to believe that he's that old. Seattle son, Chris, was home for a couple of days last week ~ so lots of fun for me!!
Have a great week ~ finally, nice weather is here!!
