Home stuff

Okay, I'm showing off. I just finished a couple photos for a potential customer so I figured I'd share them.

The picture I'm showing is my first concrete counter attempt and is installed in my own home - on my kitchen island bar. The other focus is the pole wrap technique I've used. I've never, ever seen it done elsewhere and all my internet searches has failed to turn up a picture like it. Finally you'll see the floor with the diamond mosaic inlays. I'm kinda partial to that.

The floor looks great ... but, and maybe this is just my computer but I can't see the details of the counter ... When we get the funds we will redo our island counter top and I'm looking for ideas.

I can probably email a larger picture. Do you still have my email address? I think it's probably your computer. Is your contrast too dark? There's a lot of detail to look at on the top. There's mosaic inlays, an ogee edge, exposed aggregate, and a patina in progress.

You can also probably see part of the distressed cabinet my wife did in that first photo. We did a lot of different techniques in our kitchen. All of it was labor intensive but materials cheap. Much of the material was surplus from other jobs or purchased at a heavy discount at auctions and surplus dealers.

That's quite generous of you. Don't think I haven't watched some of the home show hosts and daydreamed though.

nice island, too funny. We have absolute black granite everywhere but the island. The island is `ornamental gold` granite. I'm staring at our island it is painted white (drying) - painted Tuesday afternoon. She (my wife) has elected to get the island only, fauxed an antiqued/stressed creme, it's in it's first of a few layers. Funny. Concrete island's are really `in` right now so is soap-stone. Have you seen that yet?

Design and consulting only. All my crews are based in the KC metro and I'm through traveling except under very rare circumstances under which I can add to my portfolio and/or make a lot of money. Heh.

Yeah, soapstone is more of an east top style. It's too expensive to ship to the midwest - at least that's what I'm assuming because it's just not widely available here.

I love mixing cabinet colors and top styles within a kitchen. I'm glad it's become trendy because 5 years ago, it was almost unheard of.

Thanks. I don't care for the tile bar top I did though. I completed that portion months before I ever considered attempting concrete counters. The oak nose on it would preclude me from changing to concrete now though and I have a significant amount of time invested in perfecting that so I'll just live with it.
