There is still so much to be done in here. But the tile is finished! We used a deep grey color grout, that we mixed ourselves. We had bright white and black on hand, and used 1 part white to 2 parts black. It’s still deep without being stark, almost a very soft black. I love it. I stayed away from all white grout knowing how I cook, there would be stains everywhere. I got better things to do that scrub stains all day. I also need flooring, like yesterday!
Keep in mind the floors, trim and touch up paint still needs to be done.

Well, whats your thoughts on it?
Bad varnish job with bugs stuck in cabinets. Old Wallpaper. Bad lighting. Microwave too low. Dark and busted up counter tops.
