Counters Are In

The counters are now officially in and I think they are beautiful! 

I found a really good primer because I was getting some bleed through from the oak. BIN by Zinsser, this stuff is amazing. It's shellac based. No bleed through and no color showing through, perfect. 


This is the backsplash I chose.
 It will arrive tomorrow, I ordered it from a local store here in Cocoa Beach.

All is going as planned so far!
I'm really loving it all.

Window added between rooms.



Still much more left to do before it's finished.
