Anywho, we did manage to finish installing, grouting and buffing the new kitchen back splash tile. I've been a bit remiss in my photography on these projects since I've been working so hard on them. I just can't seem to fit in some good photo shoots! Here is the subway tile going up in a vertical running bond pattern, before grout... (I promise, better pictures will come later!)
Ok, the biggest pain in the rear was getting the new mailbox and post installed. Seriously, how hard does it have to be?? Well, let me tell ya... Hubby cannot, I repeat, CANNOT have just some puny 4 X 4 post out there holding the mailbox. NO WAY. NON. NEIN. It must be a 6 X 6 post with a notched cross beam. I wish I had a video of him carrying this monster out to the street. I laughed so hard I almost peed myself! Our Friends, thankfully, got to witness this as well as they walked over to visit. Hilarious! Luckily, since we waited SO long to get this done, we had lots of rain and the hole digging was really easy...
The kitchen is nearing completion. Next up is installing interior fittings, dishwasher, countertop, sink, and microwave/hood unit. Oh, and I STILL haven't even started on the cabinet doors. Can you tell I'm dreading it? ;-) I will get those sanded and primed sometime in the next week. Maybe. LOL!
Next time I'm hoping to have a more completed looking room to show you, there is just too much to do in this house!
Have a great week Everyone!
