Well we ordered the counter tops today- we went with Earthstone Nevada. The color is not exact here but it gives you an idea. It will be installed in about 2 weeks. Linda now has to remove the bottom row of tile so we can remove the metal trim piece.
And last- we will be replacing the dishwasher which is rusting out with a new Kenmore dishwasher. It is suppose to be very quiet and remove 99.99 % bacteria. I did not know dishwashers now come with their own garbage disposable and power washers in the bottom (have not had to buy one for a long time- they have changed).
This is like getting a kitchen redo.
