Clearance

Even though we're still months away from beginning our kitchen remodel we're already collecting materials. During our most recent trip to Helena we happened to find a few more things for the future kitchen. First off we spotted a chandelier for over the table.
Can you see that tag? $20 for a chandelier that originally retailed for $149.
It was a great deal, but the rest of our light fixtures are oil rubbed bronze. I'll be painting it to match later.
I also picked up another display model light fixture
This motion detector light will someday go on the garage. But since we currently have a flat roof and nowhere to hang the light it will be in storage. It too will be repainted.
And our other great find? Granite
I had already planned to do the counters in granite tile and had actually picked this exact color. So image my surprise when I spotted this on clearance.
That $8 price is for the entire box which works out to $1.60 per square foot. I still need to buy the rest of the countertop materials but the total cost should come out to $4 per square foot...for granite. It's hard to believe.

Now we just have to finish the electrical, insulate the attic, build a bathroom in the basement and redo four bedrooms before we can start on the kitchen. Shouldn't take long right?
