Just Add Appliances

The granite bar still isn't in, but the kitchen did get a step closer to completion today when the backsplash tile went in. This is the only part where the granite wasn't covered with cardboard (between the refrigerator and the pantry; the microwave will be mounted here):

We knew we wanted subway tile here, but we were hoping to find something a little more tan. This was a case of $12.50/square foot tile versus $3.00/square foot, and since the more expensive tile was only slightly darker, it wasn't worth the extra expense. We're hoping the light backsplash will make sense once the wood floors are finished (they'll be natural maple color).
