Friday’s Foto Finish Fiesta

Candid Carrie sponsors this one – head over to her blog and find LOTS of links for bloggers who’ve joined in! (You can join in too!)

If you’ve been following along with our kitchen renovations, this is Step 5! (Step 1 was new curtains. Step 2 was painting. Step 3 was staining the window. Step 4 was refacing the cabinets.)

We had the tile backsplash installed this week!!!

As you can see, it’s still a little dusty – I have to wait until tomorrow to wipe it all down because the grout is still drying. I couldn’t wait to post pictures though 🙂

The guy who did the refacing said this is the BIGGEST turn-around he’s seen in a kitchen – ever. And he’s been at it for a while. tee hee 🙂

The only before pictures I have of the bathroom are focused on the tub…not the walls, so no before picture here either.
