One year ago today

One year ago we were getting ready to cover the awful fruit tile. While the fruit bothers me, so does the fact that the switches on either side aren't level with one another.

You know what else? The granite slab for the island isn't set squarely on the cabinets. On one end the overhang is 1 inch and on the other end it's closer to 2 inches. Living with this mind is intense! At times I wish I could turn it off!

Funny that these types of things drive me batty, but a few weeks ago Vance put a big Lego creation on our bathroom vanity, in between our sinks, and it's still there right now. In fact, I should do a post about all the toys that are sprinkled around the house where they shouldn't be.

Vaughnie Update: She's fine. No more puking incidents and she never ran a fever. Justin returns home tonight and Vance is pumped to see Daddy and eat pizza. Happy Thursday!

  1. that would make me twitch too!!
    what did you do in place of the fruit tile?
    happy thursday!

  2. If you enlarge the photo, you'll see the glass mosaic tile that we put on top of the fruit. It took MANY trips to the tile store to find something that would work. We wanted a quick fix and were trying to stay away from having to chip out the fruit tiles and ultimately having to replace the entire backsplash. That being said we were limited to what we could really do. The glass tiles were thin enough that we could lay them directly on top of the fruit and still get the recessed look that was originally there. The colors blend well with the existing backsplash and the cabinets.

  3. that's a great fix! did you take any after pictures? we are looking for backsplash tile right now.....too many choices. i want to go with a travertine or glass tile. - big difference in styles. i'm having a hard time.
