...we have front steps:
...we have a color scheme (thanks, Heidi):
...and we have a new kitchen design (do you like the green walls and black stools? Totally my style). The big door on the end? My walk-in pantry. Hello lovah:
...Of course, I love the look of carrara marble. But unfortunately, we don't have the budget for the live-in-maid you need to care for it. But I think we might have found an alternative. Torquay from Cambria. We got a 12x12 sample that I have been walking by and admiring for days. And tonight? We let Charlie take a marker to it (um, and his left hand clearly), to see just how indestructible it really was.
Crayola washable markers were nothing for this surface. Permanent markers? Well, that's another story. There's a reason they are called permanent. Tomorrow I'll have Clara spit up on it and we'll spot test that.
