Lots going on around here this weekend getting the kitchen really close to done! The tile guys set the tile Saturday and did the grouting Sunday.I thought it was really nice of them to work on the weekend. We didn't ask them to, they offered! We are waiting on one countertop because the bar counter was measured incorrectly. That should come in this week and then we can wrap it up with carpet cleaning.
It's been a good exercise just to clean out. We've gotten rid of containers, glasses and appliances that we never use and I might even end up with a few empty shelves.
While the tile people worked upstairs, I did tile downstairs.
Here's where I left off last week.
I added more beads all the way across at this level and filled in with background tile. One of the new beads is a teapot lid.
Here's the wall so far.
The rest of the wall has to be done sitting on the concrete floor. I'll vacuum up all of the shards and bits and then get started on more beads this week.

Looks great Vicki - a teapot lid is a great addition, and I love the flower too.
those walls are just so unique! I guess my kitchen cabinets really need a clean out too - I have things that I use maybe once a year if that and still hang on to them - I would have so much more room if I just could convince myself that I do not need 15 mixing bowls (well maybe not that many) and dozens of bake ware pans - I think I used the doughnut pan(s) once? why did I get them? really way more things in here that I use or need.

Having an impetus to clean out is wonderful. I need to do the cookware cleanout and also the "plasticware" junk needs culled.

Using that teapot lid as a bead was clever! I have so few cabinets so I don't end up with a lot of stuff I can't use because there is no place to put it. On top of that I can't reach the upper shelves so not much goes up there either. I did work at a bakeware manufacturer years ago and I do have a lot of pans in the garage although I have thinned those out too. Enjoy that refreshed kitchen!

It's coming along nicely, and it sounds like your kitchen is, too. I hope to have the "Strength" top completed this week, and I will send you a picture. Enjoy the new kitchen.

Looks great! I can see now that the 'beaded curtain' creates the illusion of an entryway. Do you have plans for the wall section to the right?

It's looking fantastic! I LOVE the teapot lid - what a great idea!

It just gets better and better.
