I've mentioned here and there that we were getting new counter tops in the kitchen. There was nothing wrong with the ones that were in there and they were 27 years old. With all the counter space we have, we didn't even bother pricing solid surface counters (we are cheap). These new counters are Wilsonart HD laminate. The stainless steel sink was also 27 years old and was leaking and needed all new plumbing and the faucet was shot too. Yes, we could have just fixed that stuff, but we have been saving our pennies and were ready for a new look. We opted for the undermount stainless steel single bowl sink. We are so happy with the new counters and sink. Mrs CP also wanted a new table top, so we had them make us one to match the counters. It turned out great. She is going to recover the seat cushions and paint the chairs and the table legs. We want to add a back splash of some sort, but haven't decided if we want to paint the walls first. The outlets and covers will be replaced too. Also, there is a desk to the right of the "horseshoe", which adds to the total area of the counter surface. After 11 years of living here and doing so much outside, it is nice to finally be making some updates to the inside. Pics to follow........
