Some kind of cliche code phrase just seems to be appropriate for what my husband and I accomplished today. After a lot of sweat equity, geometry, learning what lingers in drain pipes and a dinner break to Olive Garden (in ill-fitting, paint-splattered sweat pants), our butcher block counters, new sink and faucet are installed!!! Forget weekend warriors… we’re Thursday warriors.
I knew I would love them, but I had no idea what a difference they would make in the space. It makes the kitchen look so high end! I was pretty astounded.
Anyway, I am headed to Atlanta tomorrow for a workshop and book signing on Saturday, so I won’t get to really “play” with them until I get back. I almost feel like I need to learn how to decorate my kitchen all over again. I’m used to trying to hide things I don’t like with a bunch of stuff I do like. Now I don’t need to do that! I hardly know what to do with myself.
We also need to build and install the range hood and put some finishing touches on everything to get the kitchen officially ready for “beauty shots.”
I am bursting, I can tell you that, and I can’t wait to show more.
PS – There will be a full tutorial on making your own butcher block counters on HGTV.com soon. I will also share more about the sink and faucet, why I selected what I did and the installation process.
