More Updates on Casa Montgomery

We have crossed a few more things off our list of updates to Casa Montgomery.  There are three countertops that are complete with concrete (3 layers of concrete, 3 layers of sealer), one side of backsplash that is hung (still needs to be grouted), and all of the new baseboards in the entry, living room, & kitchen/dining are put up (those still need to be caulked.)

The tile went up over the existing tile backsplash on this side due to the fact that the existing tile was literally grouted to the cabinets.  We didn't want to risk damaging the cabinets so we did some research and found out you can in fact tile over tile.  Instead of using thin-set, you use a glue adhesive.

Side one complete!

We are making some progress finally! Up next: new sink/faucet, concrete on the last (& biggest) countertop, new backsplash on the other side of the kitchen, grouting said tile, caulking baseboards, painting then hanging crown molding.
