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:
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?
