and 8 hours later, you couldn't even tell I had touched them! :/ after everything else was so sparkling clean, I just couldn't not bear to put them back in the stove... I did consider covering them with tin foil.. but I really don't like that look at all - reminds me of past apartments... so I..
tossed them in the trash and kissed them GOODBYE! After the twins woke up from their nap, I loaded up all the kids and went to Walmart...something we rarely do during the week unless we NEED something really bad... and I think this qualified for such a trip. :P
I didn't find aluminum shiny ones like the ones I had before in my stove's size - but I did find black.. and I wasn't so sure about black... but after I got them home and installed - I think I'm gonna like them a lot!
and I am not sure if clicking on the photos on my blog will make the photo larger or not... ((some blogs do that and I don't know if that requires me to do something different or not)) but while searching for the photos to add to this post - I JUST NOW saw the drip by the 1st burner knob to the right of the clock - EEEK, I missed a spot! :P
and what about all that white? personally I hate it - but it is what was here when we bought the home. White stove, white sink, white counter tops and back spash...EVEN WHITE TILE FLOOR which I really HATE! and i know my chicken metal thing doesn't sit straight.. it is simply sitting resting there as I'm too afraid to drive a nail in the back spash - it is the same as the counter top and curves up the back where it would meet the wall... which I don't' like b/c even if we wanted to tile the back spash we'd have to also replace the counter tops too b/c it is all one piece.
