Kitchen Remodel Part...something

 When we went to "purchase our lovely home" we knew the kitchen would need an overhaul...

...and so the nasty navy tile counters were first to go!

And after weighing many choices/factors, we opted for a faux 'granite' laminate...

We were keen on the low maintenance of laminate and the lower price tag since we don't anticipate on being in this home long term, thus not being able to recoup the cost of a higher grade material...

...the colors are great, enabling us to decorate with plenty of flexibility...

 ...which prompted me to choose a composite sink to replace the nasty original, almond enamel monstrosity.

Here's a full size peek at our new sink which we purchased through Amazon...

...and I couldn't be happier with how it looks!
Love the metallic flecks:)


 Granddaddy spent hours installing this due to a difference in depth/plumbing, MIA instructions, a trip to Lowes etc... but it finally was in & no leaks evident...and it looks great!!!

We chose a 'double round' finish on the counters equating to no raw edges underneath, making it the best choice for little fingers:)

Bye bye dated tile...

...hello, new 'granite':)

Next we're tackling a tile back splash & the walls- more DIY fun ahead:)
