Backsplash, countertops and couch, oh MY!

A couple of weeks ago, you all voted on your favorite tile pattern for the kitchen backsplash.  While your selections ended up confusing me even more (thanks!), I decided to go with the ultra classic pattern, option #2: Subway Tile, option 2

Main reason?  I am an amateur tiler, simple as that.  As much as I loved option 1, my newbie tiling skills would have most likely botched it.

Here's what it looks like in our kitchen now (pre-grout):

That is not all, folks.  We've been busy and striking a bunch of items off our to do list.

Our Cambria Quartz countertops got installed:

For those of you who are wondering, the color is called Torquay. It's a white-ish creamy-ish color with soft marble-like veins.

All of the lighting has been installed; recessed cans, pendants and under cabinet LEDs.

How cute is this mat? Perfect for in front of the kitchen sink.  11$ at Homesense!!!  purrrrr.

AND!!!!!!!!!!  We bought a new sofa and coffee table for the adjoining family room (which is still under construction, ahem)

I took this pic at the Mobilia store, and it's since been delivered to our home.  I really liked the look (and price) of this sofa but felt it was still a little too modern for my taste. Cue next DIY.  See those boxy black legs on the sofa? Gone!  I ordered some turned wooden legs on eBay to give the sofa a more classic look like this:

  I also ordered nailhead trim (meowWWWW) to add along the bottom of the sofa.  Something like this, maybe?
