Countertop Preview!!!

WE HAVE COUNTERTOPS!  Beautiful, clean, white countertops!  And they look phenomenal.

Yesterday, my Mom and Dad were busy working at the house {shocker}, and thankfully, that meant they were there to supervise our countertop installation and our air duct cleaning while me and the hubby were at work.

My parents said the countertop installers were terrific to work with.  Of course, our almost 60 year old kitchen walls were not straight...and that meant the installers had to make some corrections to the solid surface, but the end result looks perfect!  I'm in L-O-V-E!  {And our free stainless steel sink is pretty great if I do say so myself!} 

Here is a quick preview...more pictures to come! :)


And, AFTER!!!

I also found a wonderful air duct cleaning company on Angie's List.  If you remember from this post, our ducts were beyond nastyyyy.  I really don't think they were ever cleaned in our house's 57 year history.  And judging by the junk that came out of our ducts, the professionals agreed.  They were never maintained.  But now, thanks to the wonderful workers at Clean Air Technologies our air ducts are sparkling clean, and even sanitized.  We can finally breathe easy!


  1. Oh my God!!!!! The kitchen looks amazing! I love that you painted the cabinet interiors aqua. LOVE. The progress throughout the whole house is awesome.

  2. Great progress! And I too love the aqua inside the cabinets! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. I love the aqua in the cabinet too. And the tops look beautiful. Is that quartz?

  4. They gorgeous! I am so pumped to see the rest.

    And I too enjoy the aqua innards.

  5. Ahhhhh, I love that you guys dig the aqua we put on the inside of the cabinets! :) They were so dark and beat up before.

    Thank you, Lindsay! It's definitely starting to come together, but it'll never compare to your awesome kitchen! :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by Ashley...I can't wait to be able to share the finished product! Woohoo!

    Thanks Diana! :) No, it's not quartz...that was definitely out of our price range. We went with a solid surface countertop. It's so smooth and pretty in person. I really love it!!

    Thanks so much Brandi!! :)
