A back splash, that is. The back splash tile we ordered three weeks ago FINALLY came in. Its been a frustrating few weeks, waiting for those 3 x 6 subway tiles to arrive. The kitchen remodel has been at a standstill because of it, and in this household, time management is everything. So the lack of progress over the past few weeks has been annoying to say the least.
The good news is, we have a fully working kitchen. The fridge is no longer in the corner of the dining room. We can now wash dishes in the kitchen sink. I have counter tops to set the grocery bags on. And I can cook with a stove that doesn’t go by the name of “ghetto”.
With a fully working kitchen, you’d think I’d be back to cooking at home instead of dining out every day. But since the back splash isn’t complete, we’ve had to keep the counter tops clear to leave space for the tile laying and grouting. So our usual counter top items — utensils, spices, canisters, etc. are still in alternate locations around the house. And that makes cooking a pain. Which means that well, we’re still dining out.
Here’s a peek at the progress Mikey and Steve made on the back splash today.
It’s a long tedious process, trying to cut those glass tiles with a wet saw. But they’re doing a fabulous job, and it’s looking better than I expected. I can’t wait to see them without the spacers tomorrow morning.
Until then, Mikey and I will be celebrating with beer and wine out on the deck tonight. Cheers!
