Changing out the outlets and light switches were a big pain in the "you know where." I totally understand now why electricians get paid what they do.
I am EXTREMELY happy with my Formica Soapstone Sequoia laminate countertop! The finish is fantastic and is a breeze to clean! YaY!!
Here's the one seam. It's definitely not as noticeable as I thought it would be.
Here's those pretty listello tiles and my new cast iron sink. I absolutely LOVE my new sink!!
I have to admit it... This Kohler sink rack is the best 70 bucks I've ever spent. Yes, I b*tched and moaned about spending the money on a rack. Hey I'm frugal, what can I say! ((hee-hee))
If you don't have one for your sink, you must get one!
Go ahead, I'll wait right here for you to come back. But make it snappy.
As I looked around my kitchen, I couldn't help but think about all the changes I've made.
Come take a stroll with me... Here is how the ol' Countryfolk kitchen has looked over these past 15 years.
When we first moved in I immediately painted over the light mint green walls with a more neutral color...
Then I decided to paint the cabinets barn red and darken the walls.
As much as I loved this look, over time I felt it to be a bit too dark and somewhat gloomy. So I had to lighten everything up.
That I did! Next, I used the Rustoleum Countertop and Cabinets Transformations kits.
I also painted that 1776 Americana flag on my peninsula. It's still there. I couldn't bring myself to paint over it so I covered it with beadboard.
Then I decided I wanted a white kitchen for more of a timeless, farmhouse kitchen look...
Ooooh, I can't forget about beadboard wallpaper on bi-fold doors project and the tintile ceiling project too...
But when the countertop transformation kit I applied started to wear, it was time for a new countertop.
That's where Formica's Soapstone Sequoia laminate countertop comes in!
Man, over these past 15 years I've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this kitchen. But if I had to do it all over again, I would. (And as often as I change my mind, I'm sure it will happen again. But we'll keep that between you and me)
I'm so glad my sweet hubs doesn't read my blog.
Happy Saturday, all.
