Planet Granite in the Kitchen

My new granite countertops were installed in May and I love 'em! They definitely add a little more glam to the kitchen. Here's what the kitchen looked like before


It was a 3 day process:

Day 1: Old countertops were taken off and plumbing was disconnected


Day 2: Countertops were installed

Day 3: Plumbing was reconnected

And here's what the countertops look like now:

I got the faucet from Amazon. The countertop installers recommended we get a new garbage disposal instead of reconnecting our old one. After some research I decided to go with the Waste King disposal.

Going without a sink, a countertop, or a dishwasher for 3 days was a bit challenging but totally worth it! I decided to go without the 4 inch backsplash because I'm going to be putting in my own day. I really love, love, love the countertops, sink, and faucet! The kitchen still needs a paint job, and hardware and molding on the island. It's getting there...
