Couldn't wait to share...Before and after kitchen pics
What started out as wanting to add a simple back splash to our kitchen, turned into this. And even though the back splash isn't installed yet, I wanted to share anyway Before...This message has been edited. Last edited by: JulieE,

After....I am happy!!! We added under cabinet lighting, granite counter tops, (there is also a desk area to the right of the fridge) granite under mount sink, ORB faucet and new stainless steel appliances. And still to come... the full tumbled travertine subway tile back splash will be installed on Monday. All this plus 2 bathrooms in granite for just under $15k. Pretty happy with that! (But I guess it's a pretty expensive "back splash" lol) Next project...new wood floors!!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: JulieE,
That undercabinet lighting sure gives your kitchen a boost. Making holiday meals will have a little extra excitement for you this year with your added pretties.

Wow! Big improvement even without a backsplash. How difficult was it to install the under cabinet lighting? How did you get the electricity to them? Would love all the details if you have time. My kitchen is SO DARK.

I am sure you have a big smile on your face everytime you walk into this room. (I know I would.) Have a nice day

Absolutely love it! I had to go back and see if you changed the cabinets but it was the lighting that really makes a difference. Nice job; keep posting pictures!

Wow! looks great!

Tuesday~ I bought 6 GE 23" super slim linkable plug in under cabinet lights from home depot. They are $19.97 each. I am embarrassed to say that they are held up right now with packaging tape! Lol That is until my deer hunting DH returns from the woods. But I love them! They function very well for task lighting. I know they will be even more wonderful to use as accent lighting once the backsplash goes in.

Absolutely stunning makeover. I'm saving this as an inspiration photo. Hope you will share another picture when the back splash is installed.

Love it. Can't what to do something similar in my kitchen...good incentive for me!

Oh forgot to ask, tell me about your granite, what pattern is it. Really stands out.

It's called Cedar Canyon and for me, it has just the right amount of movement. Thanks for all the nice comments!

It really looks beautiful!

I love all of your choices. We also had undercabinet lighting when we did our granite and love everything about it. It pushed us about 700.00 over budget, but every day I walk into my kitchen and am thriled with how it looks.
We also are starting our wood floor project

Trista - I can't see them either. I think they're all pulling our leg...

The photos were removed, at least on Nov 20th they were still on the thread. I did see the photos before, so I know they WERE on this thread!
I figure she will repost something when the backsplash is finished. So watch for updates.
