Countertop weekend

Well, my project for the weekend is set up.  The laminate sheets came in today and we picked them up to finish the countertops.

Here is the laminate (the color is called basalt) with the backsplash to go with.


It’s going to look pretty sharp if it comes out okay.  I have to admit I am a wee bit nervous about doing the laminate. I will be doing this project solo as John is going out of town.  Tile is easy peasy, so once I get the laminate down, then the rest will be fine (famous last words).

Hopefully on Sunday I will have an update with pretty counters!

    Can’t wait to see the finished product Lori. You are awesome (and I know I owe you a return email – been hectic sorry!). Laminate would worry me less than tile as I helped my Dad do heaps when I was a teen. Basically glue and stick but you probably don’t have the flexibility to move and adjust as you would with tile and grout I imagine.

    It is going to be awesome!! It makes me laugh that you said tile is easy – in my world it would not be easy! Can’t wait to see the finished project!

    Such a great color combo.can’t wait to see your successful project! Your handiness does not seem to be wearing off on me,though. When I think of anything,even a painting project, I just think”I’d rather pay someone to do that…

    Will be sending good thoughts your way Lori. I’ve always heard laminate is a bear
    to work with. I’ve never tiled before either so i don’t know that i would
    call it easy..LOL! Hugs! deb

    I’ve done things like that with the razor-sharp edges. It’s like a paper cut on steroids!

    The counter and tile look beautiful!! I’m sure you added to the resale value of your house, too (as they say on HGTV 🙂

    I’m dumbfoundedly (invented word that just fits) impressed! I’d hire you to come re-do my kitchen but I can’t think of anything to lure you with. Certainly not the weather since we still have piles of snow. Glad that at least you still have all your digits. Can’t wait to see it done.
