Taking It For Granite


Did you notice my kitchen counter tops
when I posted this picture?Did you think we paid the "big bucks"
to have
solid granite counters installed?
We did not.
Hubby and I installed the counter tops ourselves.
We did the back splash too. We used granite tiles. We just laid them as close together as possible
and then filled in the tiny gaps with unsanded grout.
Unless you look really close, you can't tell
the difference between solid granite and tiles.
But our pocket book could tell.
And if you're wondering about the bull-nose trim.
I bought it from the thrift store.
Three dollars for a box filled
with enough to do our entire kitchen.
