Yup. That's what I am calling it.

I got the counter tops cut this morning and am still adjusting the center portion of the stove top counter.  Getting there slowly but surely...
I found this paper for the back splash this morning. It is some that I have had in my stash for a while. I think that it will go well with the walnut and the counter top.

This is the stone that I decided to use. no.  It's not shiny yet...
I found the paper whilst digging through the wallpaper drawer, looking for something to make canisters. 

Yes, those are the unmentionable Tampex tubes.  They are what they are.  They work great for making canisters that are opening and also non opening. 

The one that you see is a non opening kind that I made a few years ago to go in a kitchen box.  I simply added paper and red bunka to that one. 

I doubt that I will go to the trouble of making the opening kind, since I doubt that anybody is going to reach into the kitchen, drag one out and try to open it.

For the rest of the morning, I am going to be working on getting the kitchen done.  I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon, so I have to make the morning count.

See you tomorrow.

May I ask how do you cut the tubes? I have the hardest time trying to cut straws or any kind of tube. They always come out uneven!
