300 subway tiles
Our marble counters are coming MONDAY .
I'm so excited to see the counters in. I have dreamed of having marble counters for so long. I'm sure I will be a little nutty at first but marble will age and take on a patina. I have been in some old old homes with marble and there was nothing about it that I didn't like. That is why we are going with HONED , it absorbs the sealer better than polished. There are stain removal kits , and I hear stains grey out over time which just adds to the carrara. I also made sure to have a large prep area of butcher block for those messy foods.
Today I will finish up the kitchen tiling , try to finish the stair painting, and I will be adding a big header with crown moulding to the front door, it needed some more height. The biggest thing I may save for another day is trying to figure out the angles for the stair paneling , the inset trim mitre is a little tricky.
