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.

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!
