Are you guys good at estimating how long a diy project will take?
Hands down, I'm the all-time worst! I think I've mentioned this every time I've done
a One Room Challenge.
I do have one item I can cross off the list, the new counter top on our island.
I've been dying to tell you about it, I first found out about it after reading
You guys know I'm all about getting a high end look for less,
and I'd never steer you wrong, right?
It's Formica...and I LOVE it!
It deserves a post all its own with pretty pictures, so I'm holding off on
giving you all the details until the end of the challenge when I can show it off
with doors on the cabinets and such. Ok, I'll spill a couple of my favorite features,
no seams in my huge island, and did you notice the bullnose edge...LOVE!
Formica has come a long way and I can't wait to fill you in, it's the look of
marble without the expense, or worry of maintenance.
Update on some of the unfinished items...
the cabinet doors are painted, they still need hardware
and to be put back on the hinges. Tutorial to come, I'd still be painting if it
weren't for the HomeRight paint sprayer!
We have hardware!! Thanks so much for weighing in on the color!
I made a trip to Ikea and picked up some different styles and sizes.
GOLD it is, add another paint project to the list.
I also started painting my tile, it's porous and is soaking it up.
This photo shows one coat of primer. For my test I used two
coats of primer and two coats of paint.
And then there's the chandeliers and the hood...I'm making myself finish
these before I can go on to the pretty fabrics. :)
There you have it friends, thanks so much for following along and all of your
encouragement on Instagram - you're the BEST!
Let's go see what these ladies have been up to this week...
