Countertops = Finito
Remember these old white countertops? Well, thanks to some new laminate and a super handy hubby, they are Loooooong Gone.
I really can't brag enough about the work my husband did on this! He did all the research, planning every step of the process, but he let me pick the color. What a man! =)
And yes, to clear up any confusion, this is not a whole new countertop, it's just new laminate glued onto the existing countertop. After researching all our options, we decided to go this route for several reasons:
1. It's very inexpensive (around $200 instead of upwards of $500)
2. It would "reuse" our old countertops. I just felt weird about ditching a perfectly good base and paying huge amounts of money to rebuild it.
3. We just love to tear apart our house and fill it with sawdust!
Here's a close-up of what the edges look like, Josh got really good with the tool that he had to use to finish all these edges! He's a pro now I think.
Ah. Doesn't that look amazing? As you can see, we removed the old backsplash and are going to be replacing it with some chic white subway tile. I can't wait!
Happy Friday, all!
