Kitchen Remodel Part 1- Better Pics Of The Painted Kitchen Cabinets

Did you miss my post yesterday?
Here is the start of the kitchen make over journey!!

The cabinets were finally dry enough for me to close them to give you guys a better look! 
I'm SO pleased!!
Thank you Doug from Schreiner Painting Contractors of TN for the GORGEOUS job you did on the cabinets!!




Here are the two samples that our fabricator dropped off for us to see the honed kashmir white granite.  It has a smooth raw feel, very soft and similar to the feel of marble.  I am IN LOVE with it!  It really tones down and mutes the colors, which helps reduce the brightness of the garnet pieces in the granite.  VERY beautiful!!  We are SUPER excited!!

  8. I have honed Kashmir White in my kitchen and I absolutely love it. One point of caution, though...you must be religious about sealing it with a top quality sealer, and one time won't cut it. Another thing...pay attention to what you leave on the countertops. For example, I recently bought a couple of pints of strawberries. Hadn't had them on the countertop for more than an hour. By the time I was ready to put them away, a rogue strawberry had leaked juiced into my granite. The size of four pints! As long as you know your stains, you can make a poltice to pull the stain out -- but it's VERY important with Kashmir White (and similar light granites) to attend to it immediately. For instance, strawberry juice required me to go to the beauty supply store and buy 12% hydrogen peroxide and then Lowes for some plaster of paris to make a poltice. Every speck of juice was pulled out by the next morning. Then, on another day, my olive oil bottle left a ring. I needed acetone and plaster of paris for that poltice. Again, every speck pulled out. Just make sure you know your stains and familiarize yourself with this website: www.columbusgraniteandmarble.com/news/2/59/911-to-Stain-Removal-for-Your-Natural-Stone in the meantime. It's a great resource for granite stain removal and I've never used one of their methods and failed; all successful. Kashmir White takes a lot of work to keep it looking beautiful, especially if you do a lot of cooking, baking and entertaining like us. But it is so gorgeous, you'll find the extra diligence is worth it. Good luck!
