Gorgeous DIY Kitchen Countertops for $120!
We live in a builder grade, subdivision home with every aspect looking basically like our neighbors- including the white laminate countertops. Not exactly what I want to go with my adorable cottage kitchen. The problem is that countertops are expensive. I figured out a way to give me million dollar counters for the cost of a night out.
All it took was 3 pieces of Aspen, some 1 x 2 trim pieces, stain and polyurethane and I had a gorgeous new counter. I have to mention that I also have 3 very messy and rough kids that don't care where they leave water or anything else for that matter, but after 2 months now, they are still gorgeous and no issues with water at all.
This was the initial experiment counter... turned out awesome.
The ugly before with all white everywhere.... with the exception of the bright orange where I insisted on not painting since my apron sink would be there. As you can see in the after photo...they have since been painted white without an apron sink. :(
Please go to my blog for the 3 part series on our countertop adventure! Trust me... it was an adventure with lots of ridiculousness that I hope will help others in their countertop endeavors!
