It's done. We finished...and by we, I mean mostly Adam. Once again, I drastically underestimated how long an "easy" home improvement project would take...and I really hate quotation marks, but I think that was an appropriate use-note the word (and I will spare you the marks this time) underestimated. Do it yourselfing gets old pretty quick people. But I love the end result.
These pictures do not do justice to the germ infestedness of our former formica
wonder...and I am NOT a germ freak.
During: Take note of the sleuthfully swiped dental mask
Next up: remedying this unfortunate disaster of a garage door.
Folks, as a courtesy to the future owners of your home, please do not authorize your children or grandchildren who are artistically inclined...baffled pause...(again, quotes may have been appropriate, but I chose to withhold them) to post their work as a decorative maneuver in an all too conspicuous part of your current home. Someone else will inevitably own it and think it not so adorable as you do. Thank you.
PS Two more things that I want to post about later, and this preview will serve as a reminder so that I will actually do it: 1-why I heart/hate getting up at 6am to exercise and 2- why I do food storage and heart THAT too.
