You know my bathroom, next was the kitchen

Here's an update on the progress I've made in my kitchen, and I thank everyone for the help with the backsplash (it's much easier to get tile and grout help here sometimes than the kitchen forum). The honed calacatta gold remnant I bought for a steal was installed yesterday, and my contractor came today and finished his end. I still have to paint trim and touch up some of the corners and seal the marble backsplash. Enjoy, for now.

It came out great! What a lucky find on the counter!
Your cat is gorgeous. :-)

I feel like I could reach out and pet both the cat and the counter - both are gorgeous! It's not surprise that you did a wonderful job.

Are the full details over on the kitchen forum? I'm curious about your wooden magnetic knife bar. Did you cover one of the metal ones with a wood strip, or do they come that way?

Your kitchen is beautiful! As is your bathroom.
Wow! Love your marble counter & the backsplash. Just gorgeous! Enjoy it.

It's actually a piece of walnut I believe and there's a channel in the back with several cylindrical magnets which latch on to a metal bracket that screws into the wall with two screws. I used to have two of them, but I just gave one away to my neighbor because I couldn't bring myself to drill through the marble backsplash as I had done with the last one, and because I now have enough drawer space to put the other knives in a drawer block.

I'll try to figure out what brand it is for you. I think it was like $30, but I've had it for 6 years.

Thanks, everyone.

Beautiful! What color grout did you end up going with? I like the size of you drawer pulls, not to heavy looking.

And I'm glad to see that your cat matches your kitchen ;)

I went with the TEC pearl, and I'm glad I did.

Beautiful Kevin,

I haven't read all your posts about your kitchen, but I think having that separate counter in the Calcutta Gold was serendipity. Just beautiful!
