Almost new kitchen coming up!

I'm sorry. I have not been in a blogging mood. I don't know why, it just is what it is. But I want to blog more to record these days for my children to look back on. Not sure how I'm going to reconcile those two issues. For now, I'll just jump right in where we are.

Right here…

…in the kitchen.

I am terrible about taking before pictures because usually when demolition is involved, I just start ripping things out. But I love seeing other people's projects! So I'm going to try to blog this project the way I like other people to blog their renovation projects. (Cough,cough,Dwija…ahem!)

We are replacing our 26 year old white laminate (durable as heck, but so easily stained) countertops with something new. Tomorrow, these get removed and donated to someone who is going to try to get a little more life out of them (see what I mean by durable). We have chosen a neutral color Silestone product to replace them. Here are a few more before pictures with some extra info for anyone who's interested.
We are even replacing our window ledge with the same Silestone material. This window ledge. The bumpy, nasty, old, warped, painted MDF window ledge. Our tile guy recommended that because I am not fancy enough to think of something like that for myself. I might have to make him a cake for that suggestion. Best idea EVER!

This outlet just hanging out in the middle of the wall for no good reason will get moved lower and further back in the corner. Please ignore the missing laminate backsplash. 

Missing backsplash on the other side because we have to match!

White subway tile backsplash coming up!
