But Honey, I love my countertops NOW...

The one thing I am going to miss from our current home to the new one are my full granite counters and back splash.
My hubs brought home samples of Formic* but I just kept looking at my granite.
He said "if we can find a granite within "this" budget, we will get it.  But don't count on it.


Uh, Lord, yep, It is me again...could you find me some cheap inexpensive granite please?
So my hubby started looking on CL.  Found one that said he had 4 slabs to pick from.  We went and told him what we were doing...ok, he said,so what do you really want.  I told him.  He said, ok, I will do that.....yea, we can do it in your budget.  (Well, the sink added a bit, but I begged for an undermount.)




Isn't it pretty?????

Still looking for a backsplash.... (oh isn't the floor a beauty???  we will get there!)


Me:  Hello Lord...it's Ceekay again!

What a good laugh you gave me Ceekay. I too am always asking the Lord for help. Sometimes I think he's got to say, "Oh, you again" lol! Love the counters. I know the floor will be fab too!

Rebecca said...

Some of our dynamics are different but I'm hearing you girl. I feel the same way. Steve and I are do-it-yourselfers and we are always trying to save $. I suppose our early years of marriage and being constantly FLAT BROKE has kept us in the mind-set that financial ruin is never far away. Even tho we work and do fairly well now I will NEVER forget living without and so that said...we are always on the quest to save $$$ and wheel & deal. Our kitchen remodel will be don a less than a shoe string. More like a piece of thread. :( But I know in the end the $15K we spend will be turned into a $65K remodel.

I love your counter tops. LOVE THEM! I'm reminded how God gives up the desires of our hearts.

Olive Cooper said...

Susan said...

Your granite countertops are definitely lovely, Ceekay. You’re lucky to have a resourceful husband. Those granites are just pleasing to the sight. I can say that your kitchen is greatly coming along. :]
