your kitchen's transformation is AMAZING! i love the budget-minded but high-impact attitude of it all. i can only hope for the same with my planned kitchen remodel!

Your kitchen is so pretty. I am also doing black with marble and LOVE your sink, especially it's price (compared to ROHL and Kohler's versions of deck mounted bridge sinks you saved $600 to $800!). Has your sink held up??

This kitchen is absolutely gorgeous. I love the rubbed black cabinets so much. Also the marble is amazing. I really like the black white contrast of the kitchen; I think it would look great in my bathroom with my vintage tub.
