Today we are 1 step closer to being done. Hubby installed the edge molding and I was able to finish the grouting between the tiles and edging. The process is so multi-stepped, but was so worth saving the money on an over priced contractor. Home depot wanted $4000 to do a composite counter top and we were able to do the marble tile for $300 by watching sales and doing the work ourselves.
I'm still doing a bit of touch up on the grout and paint, but am very happy with the outcome.
Below are the finished photos. Now we need to do another sanding, staining and sealing on the floors as well as install the kick boards under the cabinets and we'll finally be done!!
