DIY Project Parade

I‘m not ready to show off today but I did finally finish painting the kitchen cabinets.  ::celebration dance::  Tutorial coming soon and next step is choosing our countertops.  I’d love to have a kitchen like the one shown below with soapstone counters, but realistically granite is our best choice since our kitchen is Mr. DIY’s creative lab of delicious cuisine and experiments.  Soapstone dream….
Granite dream (more realistic).We’re hoping for “jet mist” granite like this which has a similar look to soapstone:

but ultimately, it depends on what we can find locally.  I know it wasn’t a choice at two local granite places two months ago when we first started looking.  Wish us luck – since I can’t have soapstone I “need” to find this granite locally.  I don’t want to settle.   Edit:  Please note those are dream/inspiration pictures above.  My doors are still not back on (they’re drying) and our current countertops are blue laminate!  The floor is white OLD linoleum.  I can only dream that my kitchen will look as beautiful as above!  

In the meantime, I’d love to see what you’ve been up to!
