Before Ahhh. My Kitchen.Not my favorite room in our house.We have had this sage green formica countertop and I just know what you are thinking. Now why would she want to swap out this beauty. Yeah, right.
We have debated and debated how to change this countertop. We have a very limited budget so we knew whatever we did we would have to do it on our own. Our home is currently for sale so we just kept putting the project off until last week.I just couldn't take this green beast another day. And not only was the countertop a major problem so was the kitchen sink. It was NOT a double sink. Who does that? I couldn't keep that thing clean to save my life. But just like the countertop we lived with it. But we figured if we are pulling it out to redo the countertop it would be the perfect time to swap out the sink. I am not ashamed to show this very professional paint job from a few years back. Yep, I did that. Why pull out the oven while painting when you can just paint around it. It really does not matter because our next project will be to put in a subway backsplash. We decided to tile over the green beast late Friday night last week. We planned to pick up supplies the next day. And I am happy to say it is complete aside from the backsplash. I cannot lie when I say even the hardiebacker board is an improvement from the green beast! We opted for this granite style tile and could not be happier. After Isn't it just lovely. I have dreamt of this change for quite some time! I don't know if you noticed our nasty chrome single faucet but we swapped that out as well when we installed the new sink. We found both the faucet and the double sink on KSL and saved ourselves several buckaroos! The double sink finishes eveything off nicely. The addition of new hardware can make a significant difference and change the feel of a whole room like a kitchen or bathroom. So there you go. Our before and After.
We are happy and wished we would have done this years ago!
