Penny tile



I felt famous for a minute when I discovered my penny round kitchen back splash made a small debut on the well known blog 'Young House Love'. I then panicked for a moment when I realized that the picture of my kitchen that was featured under my home tour link was less than impressive. I still don't know why I decided to post that specific picture. The kitchen towel that was very visible in the picture looked like I just mopped the floor with it and than hung it up in it's disgusting state. There was a water jug on the floor, fingerprints all over the stainless steel appliances, my cell phone sitting on the kitchen island. I might be exaggerating a little but not much. Just wanted to redeem my kitchen, it really is not so bad. I'm getting the hang of "staging" a a room before pictures. Don't worry the other side of my kitchen that's not pictured is a total wreck!

I don't know if I have mentioned before but my husband built the cement counter tops in the kitchen by himself. He watched you tube videos and taught himself how, this was his first attempt. I really love how they turned out and would highly recommend them. My second choice for counter tops was carrara marble. I opted out of doing carrara because I read that because it's marble it scratches and stains easily. I did go with the carrara for my master bath and love it in there!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Linda, I got my light fixture from overstock.com. I think they still carry it and it was pretty inexpensive.
