The tile backsplash has been mostly installed. There's still a weird little section that's not finished, and it looks like they have some grouting to do. Also, it looks like someone was having fun stacking little plastic buckets on the counter.
They have simultaneously been painting the room. The paint is Benjamin Moore Harvest Gold, which sounds like a hideous appliance color from the 70's, but the color looks great in the room. It's pretty close to what was in there before, but is a little richer and warmer. I love that the way the painted soffits look against the white ceiling.
