My Kitchen Remodel Is Finally Finished.

I started this blog September, 2007 when I began our kitchen remodel. One thing was never finished from the remodel. Until Thursday, August 26, 2010.
And that would be the trim around the kitchen window.
Check it out. Click to enlarge. For almost 3 years, it's just been bare, exposed wood. We had a piece of cherry trim to go around, but Mr. Hawthorne never wanted to bother with it and now I'm glad he didn't. So, this window has been untrimmed all this time ... ... until now. Back in June, Mr. Hawthorne and I had lunch at Bad Bean Taqueria in Seagate Shopping Center. When we left, we happened to walk by Creative Touch Tile next door. And I saw my tile trim. We went in, talked to the owner, Matt, about the trim and a bathroom remodel and here we are now: I finally have my trim and we're on the fourth week of a major bathroom remodel. And yes, I've documented the before, during, and after of the remodel, all of which I'll be blogging about, as soon as the renovation is complete. But for now, I'll show you my finally completed kitchen window.
It's hard to shoot a picture of this iridescent tile that does it justice.
It's the thin strip on the right. Without the grout.
Here's my tile guy doing the grout.
Here are some closeups of the tile strips so you can get an idea of what they look like.
It's iridescent and changes with the light and angle of view.
Rosie's happy.

I am ashamed to admit I never noticed that it wasn't finished. I promise to gush over it when next I visit.
