New Kitchen Backsplash


Soon after buying this house in Nov.,'04, we started remodeling the kitchen. It went from a U shape, with 1 entrance/exit, ---to a center island---LOTS more room! We lost the 'bar' area, but, gained so much more workspace. This old Florida home has terrazo floors {now covered in Bruce Brand Laminate}{personally, I miss the ease of cleaning the terrazo!}.
This was the last remodeling project I got to do together with my husband, before he had a stroke.
in process of putting in new backsplash tiles.
with the new tiles on, and under-cabinet lighting installed.
Center Island.
