When we first saw our house, one of the things I really liked was the size of the kitchen. It was quite a bit bigger than every other one we had seen. There were a lot of things I did not like about it though. The paint, the rooster border, the grimy 1980’s cabinets, the fluorescent lighting, the vinyl flooring, the dated appliances, and the beat up faux butcher block counter tops.
However, we knew that everything we had a problem with could be easily remedied with some elbow grease and patience. In the year and a half that we’ve lived here, we’ve tackled several of the issues that plagued the kitchen. Right before Christmas, I decided to take on our countertops.
