Today I bring to you my very own mother's painted kitchen counter tops. She totally owes me for this one. ;) You see, I first came across this idea from a blogger who I have a mutual cousin with, Peter Marie. I asked her what she used, and the rest is history. I remember when I called my mom about the idea, and one day while she was visiting me, we set to work (oh mine, not her's). NOW, I must tell you this. My mom had been looking into replacing her kitchen counters. Before we started mine, she said "Kammy, that's okay for your old farmhouse. But our house is... newer, and well... painted countertops just wouldn't quite cut it...." Hmph!!! Boy was she wrong!!!! After seeing mine, she changed her mind and decided to paint her own!! (Saved hundreds - possibly THOUSANDS of dollars!!) Here's how they looked before:
Oooooooo Ahhhhhhhh, such a better look, eh? Even more so since it cost under $100!!!
|I'ts been OVER A YEAR and this is how they look today! Just as good as the day she did them!!!|
