Last house project before the nursery

For the past few years I have been wanting to update our kitchen, nothing major, just give it a little facelift. Keeping in mind that we don't plan on staying in this house for more than 3-4 more years, I decided to just update the counters and sink. Our old counters were a cream color and I just hated them. And the sink, a cheap builders sink with the cheapest possible faucet. Here are a few 'before' pictures.

Even though I was unsure what it would look like with our light cabinets and backspash, I decided to go with a dark, shiny finish counter top. I also decided on a black sink with a pull down faucet. I am so happy with how it turned out. It was relatively inexpensive and I think it made a huge difference when it comes to the look of our kitchen!!  Plus, I am in there enough, I figured it was well worth it.

That was the last official home project that I wanted to get done before our little man comes. Now I am 100% dedicated to the nursery!!! Let the madness begin.
