For those of you wondering, we are 97% finished with the kitchen. I took off work last Friday to work on the back splash. Here is a before picture... ...and setting the tiles in place to get a feel for what they will look like.
Measuring my cuts...measure twice, cut once!
And here is what the tile looks like freshly installed...
...I still need to finish wiping the grout off the tiles and then swap out the outlets.
Then all that is left is some work on the baseboards and the kitchen will be done!
