From Lam to Glam
When we decided to upgrade to the granite, we fell in love with Black Pearl. It's almost black but has little bits of grayish and flecks of gold that kind of went with the cabinets. Those were installed Friday and give the kitchen a completely different look...
I like them, they're pretty. But dang do they suck the already bad light out of the room! I kind of miss the light, airy feel of the laminate we had but it was nicked up and we needed to replace it. I know the darkness of it will wear off eventually, it'll just take a little getting used to. Here's a close up...
Before people freak out about why we didn't go with an undermount sink, we have a tip out to keep sponges and potato scrubbers and such and we use it all the time. Undermount sinks aren't compatible with that so that was a no go. I'm not heartbroken over it, it wasn't that important to me, it just would've been nice had it worked out.
So in the end, I'm happy that part of things are done around here. We've already given it a pretty hard initiation with a nice spread of things to serve our friends who were putting up our crown molding upstairs.
What did you end up doing this weekend?
