Before I gush about my brand new countertops, I'd like to congratulate LizzieBeth at Lizzie in Progress and Karrie at The Brick Cottage for winning gift cards in my Save-A-Lot giveaway (I pulled their numbers using Random.org this morning)!
Before, I had a gunk trap (aka overmount sink) installed on some seriously beat up (knife marks and stains galore) off-white laminates...
...and now, although there's still some work to do (hello, backsplash and faucet) I have a much more sleek (and clean!) workspace to make those holiday cookies on! And yes, the new sink is a good 2-3 inches deeper than my old one.
Cross your fingers for Nate this weekend- I'm hoping that he can pull off installing the faucet, disposal, etc. and save me $275 in plumbing fees!
Okay, so here's where the Renozilla comes out in me... As you can see below, the new counters (on the right) look TOTALLY different from the sample I chose from (left). I was going for a completely black look and wasn't so happy to see all of the veining that the "absolute black" came with. I know that each slab is different, but seriously?
