My Counter Top.

Hi everyone.  How about taking a peek at the progress we’ve made so far?  Let’s start with the counter tops.   I think my husband did a fantastic job. 

This is what the counter looked like before.   Can you say ugly?  Very outdated.  IMG_4046


And after!  I love the color.  Love the different shades it has.  IMG_4089

My hubby wubby cleans his mess too. :)  Thank goodness. :D  IMG_4112

This is a close up of the formica top.    I love it.  We didn’t spend a lot money because we’d like to add on to our house and our addition includes a kitchen.  Someday.  For now, this is what we’ll have.  I love it.  IMG_4075

For the backsplash, I am using the beadboard wallpaper everyone is using lately. I ordered mine thru Home Depot.  They have the best price.   I’ll make another post as soon as I finish this part.  For anyone that is thinking about using beadboard wallpaper, I say go for  it.  It is very easy to handle.  And…’s paintable.  I will be painting mine probably in the same shade as the counter top.IMG_4051

We also bought a new sink in a slate color.  It is a dark color almost black but not quite black.  Love it.  We are adding trim to the cabinets and then I want to paint the trim and make it look distressed.   Hopefully, it’ll look good.  I saw some cabinets at Lowe’s and I loved the look they have.  They have a glaze over certain areas. The glaze is called Toasted Almond.  Love it.  I’m going to attempt doing that on my cabinets.  Wish me luck.  hee hee

Well I hope y’all enjoyed a little peek at my counter top.  I’ll make sure and give y’all an update as soon as we finish.   I can’t wait to show  you all!

It sure made a difference :-) And inexpensive, you say? Well, I think everybody is all for that too :-) It gives much more warmth to your kitchen - the color.

Looking good Sandra! I'm so excited for you. I remember when we redid our kitchen. It was tons of hard work, but at the end it was all worth it. Can't wait to see more. Have a great day.
