52 in 1: WEEK 41 - kitchen tile

Ahhh, finally. After a little over a week, I have my kitchen back and pretty new tile to enjoy! The tiles are bigger than the others, and we used a super dark charcoal grout (even though in the flash pictures it looks lighter). Next up, painting the cabinets (white!) and installing the pretty glass knobs that are just waiting to be put to use and admired (I swear a ray of sunshine comes out of that box and I hear a choir sing every time I open it... baha!). I've been collecting lovely plates to display on the wall near the sliding doors and Ryan just ordered new blinds for those doors (the ones that are up now are so old, dirty, and, most importantly, broken).

So, of course I waited until there was practically no light left to take these pictures (and I hate using a flash) so I apologize for the orangey glow.

Our starting point:

Before and after!

The color looks like this in real life- had to turn the flash on to really capture it.


A few more things to make me happy today:

Angel face baby boy.

Aqua nails (OPI's "fly" from the Nicki Minaj collection- can't believe I admitted that).

Abbott's in March- my husband is THE best.


  1. I looked at your kitchen and immediately thought "I would paint those cabinets white if that were my house!" mostly because I think it would look fabulous with the stainless steel and new floors....and then I read what you wrote and you ARE painting them white! awesome! can't wait to see what it looks like- love white cabinets in the kitchen.

  2. Wow, it's amazing how much flooring can change a room! It looks really nice. :)
    Can't wait to see the white cabinets!


  3. Ahhh love! So happy you have your kitchen back and its improved!! Also I'm laughing about the choir and nikki minaj.
