    So yeah, all moved in and settled (pretty much). This is a HUGE step for me earning my free-time (gaming-time) back:

    Before and afters: (yeah, I know I didn't really clean-up to take these)

    Before: (note, the date):

    the new tile:

    (I also used 24" slabs for the counter-tops)

    this is the back-splash between the microwave and stove. (I'm a better builder than a photographer):

    Here's a close-up of the back-splash tile. I got it for freezle from a friend. Italian blown-glass with gold-leaf import. $100/sq ft!

    Love the layout hate the color of the white cabinets, being in custom cabinets for 16 years I know of the major issues that color will pose. about 5-10 years they will need to be replaced.

    you should have seen the cabs before kaleb. They were that 70's 'liquid gold' varnish crap. Took me a week to strip it all off. I just painted them with acrylic latex. I could always change colors I suppose.

    You may be ok then, I thought it might be white lacquer, or white conversion varnish, both tend to get a **** yellow hue after they age. :thumbup1:

    You know, I DID do the cabs at my last house with Lacquer because it was during the winter and I needed something that dries fast, but dude.. I SWORE to myself I'd never do that again. . Aside from my gun being a Husky POS, the fumes, the sticky paint on EVERYTHING on your EYELIDS up your NOSE.. yeah.. **** that couch. NEVER again..

    I DID however use enamel for the doors because I wanted something shinier and smoother and more 'scrubable' than latex.

    I'm NEVER doing my own cabs again, frankly, its worth paying guys like you the big $ to do it right.

    I want my next cabs to be like.. teak wood or something anyways..

    Oh, and you know whats worse than either Lacquer or enamel? Shellac..

    I swear, the lobbyists for the painter's union went to the Devil himself and said:

    'Satan? Can you give us something to make these guys' life even MORE of a living hell than it already is?'

    Satan then handed them a can of shellac.
