Here's a picture of the countertops right after the installer brought them in the house. I was soooooooo excited!

Click on the photo to see it close-up. Try and look at it around the Noodle (who ran into the kitchen and right in front of me.)
I wanted to get a picture speedy-quick before the installer took them away............................because they weren't what I ordered :(

See that backsplash? Didn't want it.

See the edges? They're all wrong, too.

Story of my life. Way deep down, I knew it wouldn't be right. I called Zuddy at work and told him and laughed about it, but later on in the day I got pretty crabby about it.

I've been sooooooooo patient and easy-going about the fact that the kitchen's not done! Now I'm just irritated!!! I mean, did you see that picture of my diningroom yesterday? What a mess! And poor Zuddy had to re-attach all of the plumbing and old countertops and move the appliances back. And now he has to do it all again on Tuesday when they come back to install the correct countertops. Humph.

Okay...I quit crabbing about it now.

Here are a couple of pictures of a cute kitchen in a house that's for sale near us:

I don't love the floor, but the rest of it is pretty cute, huh?

Oh my gosh, that is so irritating! Especially when you guys moved the appliances & everything.

Love the kitchen from the house for sale. Its bad to covet other people's things, isn't it? Darn.

Oh, I'm so sorry... I saw the title "SIGH...." and thought 'OH NO, NOT the wrong countertops!!!'

You *deserve* to be crabby, don't worry about us! :/

That is a major dissappointment, especially after you have waited soooo long. I'm in a hurry this morning, so I will be back this afternoon to catch up on your blog. TTFN

So what's the deal with the countertop people? Is it just a fluke or do you think they are lame? Did you hire a company to do the work for you? I feel your pain on this one. Such a let-down.

I think my job is a total fluke. I went to a slightly more upscale place than Home Depot. They only sell bathroom and kitchen cabinets and fixtures and flooring and tile. Their cabinets are a step up from Home Depot and Lowe's.

They've been very nice, .....but I'm about to write about what happened yesterday :)

Thanks for commenting, everybody...I love to get those emails saying someone left a comment :)
