Kitchen Countertops Are Here!

 Progress!

Kitchen countertops!

After a slightly exhaustive search, we chose quartz.

We ordered it from Menards,

which is a Midwestern version of Home Depot or Lowes.

A dark gray — Genesis — will top our white perimeter cabinets:

I love the contrast of the dark against the white!

For our oak kitchen island, we chose Flaked Pearl quartz.

Again, there is a nice contrast!

Lovely!

Well, just wait a minute — here’s where it got scary.

Believe it or not, G.O. measured + ordered them by himself!

WOW — I thought, what could possibly go wrong???

surprised boy

The good news is that nothing went wrong, + they look fantastic!

I should have never doubted him!

Anyway, I’m especially fond of the beefy ogee edges

+ think they add vintage charm.

Sadly most places charge a hefty additional fee.

I couldn’t remember the exact $ amount, so I asked G.O. just now.

He said something about $30 per linear foot.

Yikes — no can do!

Fingers crossed the gray Genesis quartz will play nicely

with everything else in our kitchen’s ‘color story’. . .

. . . especially my beloved gray backsplash tiles:

Stay tuned!
