Kitchen Time Lapse

A Surprise for My Bride

We signed the paperwork with Premier Surfaces to replace our countertops and tile backsplash on January 26th and they told us that the soonest they could start the project was Monday, February 13th.

That was a lie...

I had them tell Wendy that was the date when we went in to sign off on the paperwork. What Wendy didn't know, is that I had already worked it out with Premier to start the project 1 week EARLIER, on the 6th. The same day that she was leaving to go on a business trip for 3 and half days. Which would be PLENTY of time to get old countertops ripped out, old backsplash tile ripped out, kitchen cabinets prepped for painting, new granite countertops installed, new backsplash tile installed and new paint on the cabinets. In THREE days...no problem...

Right?!

Wendy's reaction when she walked in at 5am, after riding a charter bus all through the overnight hours, was THE BEST!

Watch...

Before and After Pics

I NEVER remember to take the before pics of a project. Luckily since we had the idea to market the house this way, we've had pics of most of the rooms in our house up on our "Make Me Move" listing on Zillow. Plus, having them be in one .jpg file helps when you Pin these to Pinterest.

The walls are Revere Pewter. The cabinets are in Alabaster White.

As if painting the cabinets in 1 day wasn't enough, Three Brothers Painting also did the handrail for our staircase as well.

We went from the standard oak finish on the handrails to Black Fox paint that matches our fireplace mantle and our kitchen pantry doors.
