Copper Countertops Under 20$ What????
Three of the 4 squares in this picture are real copper countertops, gorgeous, shiny, and expensive. However one of these squares is MY copper countertop. Which is also gorgeous, shiny, but cost less than $20 and as it turns out, is made of concrete.
I have ALWAYS wanted copper counters or a copper sink. But once I did the research I realized just how impractical it was, not to mention how expensive. Apparently, copper isn't all that durable. So I decided to fake it.
But to complete the rustic look, I had wanted to use reclaimed wood as a backsplash. But given the small space, it seemed kind of overwhelming. Then it hit me.....
Copper isn't for everyone, but we sure love this bathroom at our house. There is still more to do (paint, flooring, light fixture) but this is a great start,

Wow! I'm thinking of our very out-dated bathroom sinks, and this may be the ticket! Madison, one concern, however--you were careful to use gloves when applying the concrete, but I noticed you didn't when applying the copper product and the blue. Our skin is one of the most absorptive organs, and the chemicals in these products are very toxic. Maybe next time you have a similar project, just keep those gloves on! :)
