# LivePrettyKitchen: Kitchen Progress

Hey there! Super excited that I have a kitchen update for you guys this week! Last week, I got my flooring installed and my old backsplash torn out. Earlier this week, I got the drywall patched and smoothed to prepare for the new backsplash and I also got my new granite countertop!
But first, let't take a look at where we started...

And here we are so far!

For flooring, I went with a porcelain tile from Home Depot with grout in Delorean Gray.

My last floor was 12x12, but I decided to go up in size and this  size is 18x18. It definitely has taken some getting used to, but I think its beautiful.

Here is a close up of the counter:

You have to work with me on the dust and stuff on the floor. As I am getting all of the work done in my house, keeping things clean has been a thing of the past because installing the flooring and removing the backsplash has done nothing but create so much dust. Once I get drywall sanded again, I will begin to get things cleaned up.

My faucet is getting put in today and hopefully we will begin installing backsplash this weekend.

So what's left to do?

  • Replace countertop with granite
  • Remove old backsplash
  • Replace Backsplash
  • New Faucet
  • Remove random cabinet
  • Add 2 floating shelves where old cabinet was
  • New light over table- replace with either a fixture or something
  • Remove box florescent light and replace with recessed lights throughout kitchen
  • Replace current flooring
  • Buy New over kitchen sink light
  • Add light over sink
  • Add under cabinet lighting 
  • Add molding around kitchen window

    Until next time.
