We decided to go with the butcherblock countertops from Ikea. We ended up buying them from the States... we don't live far from the detroit border and it only took about an hour to get to Ikea.
Our kitchen looked like this on the weekend....Aren't you just totally digging the 1980's wallpaper that we discovered when we took out the dishwasher? I am thinking about trying to find a match for the rest of the room....
We chose a good weekend to have our kitchen torn apart though! Saturday night was an Easter dinner with my husband's extended family. Sunday morning was an easter fellowship breakfast at our church, and we had dinner Sunday with my husband's family. So thankfully I didn't have to cook any meals without a sink.
After they cut the counter, it took me several hours the next day to clean up all the saw dust. There was piles and piles and piles of it! And dust coating everything.
The doors are almost done. The ones over the sink are hung. I still need to choose hardware and figure out what to do for a backsplash? Any suggestions for something easy?
