Kitchen Project Complete with pics!
 
Well, finally after a month of working on weekends and after work, I have finished the kitchen project. You might remember my thread from a while ago showing some before pics and in progress pics. It can be found here... http://www.diychatroom.com/f15/kitchen-progress-21622/

Project included new granite counters, new backsplash, new cabinet hardware, new sink/faucet.

Here are some pics of the project completed. Just need to do some of the details, like the outlet covers. We had to special order them to match the faucet and handles.

Fantastic job! I love the tile you used for the countertop.
Would you mind sharing where you purchased it and the name of the pattern? I'm getting ready to upgrade our kitchen, and you're using the colors I'm going to be working with.

Thanks! The granite is called "Venetian Gold" and we got it at The Tile Shop. You can get it at many other places, even including Lowe's. The name varies slightly but it is all from the same place/quarry. Supposedly, it is one of the most popular colors of granite for the kitchen. :):)

Thanks for replying. I live about 6 miles from a Lowe's store.
I'll check it out. Not sure my local store carries the tile's.

so beatiful
 
do you remove the old counter top and put in new wood materials before laying the tiles? or you use the the old counter top as backing materials.... do you have in between pictures too...

Question
 
You made your open through wall with your sink in the counter top. I have decided to put my oven in the same place because of back spray into the next room. What are your reasons and thinking on this? Just checking out the situtaion for why you went this direction. Looks great. Dorf Dude

mercurycnz - Here is a link to all the pics I took...flip through, there are a few pages of the whole process!

KUI****G - I removed the old laminate counter top and MDF backer underneath. I then laid 3/4" ply and with tile cement board on top. Flip through the pics in the link above and you will see many pics of what I am describing.

shumakerscott - The opening above the sink has been there since the house was built, I cant take credit for that. Also, the sink has always been located underneath that opening. As far as backspray or anything like that, it isnt a problem at all. Occasionally, some water might get on the trim around it but it never goes beyond that. If you want the oven there, I would say go for it, I am sure it will look good.

Again, thanks for all the responses and compliments!!:):)
