We finally have new countertops! Now that we have them, I am kicking myself for waiting so darn long. I was really struggling with the decision to get marble or something more durable.. eventually practically won out and we went with the Silestone Quartz "Stony Ibiza." I could not be happier with how they turned out! (But some day I will have my marble... some day!)
The pictures don't even do justice to how beautiful they are and what a difference they make in the room. To be fair, in every other picture you've seen of my kitchen the counters look better in the picture than they did in real life. They were pretty beat up!
I also repainted the cabinets and Evan re-drywalled the island (it was super wonky and uneven plaster).
I feel like this change has made me fall in love with this house all over again!
The white and gray baskets on the left hand side of the kitchen next to the mixer hold bottle parts, pacifiers, and kid utensils! Essential to have handy, but I hate looking at them. These baskets have helped hide the clutter!
The island here is the biggest change. I love, love, love it!
We decided to do a 2-inch angle on the corners of the island to prevent any hard bumps! I love the look too.
I'm kind of thinking of re-styling the kitchen... the curtains and the rug and the stools, in particular. We'll see!
