When my mom moved into her condo eight years ago she stripped wallpaper and repainted every wall. She has replaced all of the carpets and made some great furniture purchases for her home, but lately, these Formica countertops and the drop in sink and a noisy faucet have been crying out to her for attention.
Shorty after she moved in we added the tin backsplash. You can read about it here. After the wallpaper was removed the wall was uneven and naked looking and this was an easy and economical fix, but now she was thinking of new countertops and you know how one thing leads to another...
She hasn't had a lot of her friends over yet so I won't steal her thunder and show you the full reveal yet, but I will tease you with the elements she is working with.
I love the countertops that she chose. They are a Cambria quartz in the Summerhill pattern. I'm glad they had a display of this countertop at Ferguson's because it is so much prettier in a longer run and we could see what the full pattern would look like.
I was over at her place this week, after the backsplash was installed, and we are both so excited to see how great it looks now that it is all put back together. She is considering painting the cabinets, or maybe just the walls? But for now, she just wants to live with it for a bit and enjoy what she has accomplished so far. I'm so glad that my mom wants to keep her place looking current and hasn't become complacent when it comes to decor. I love her new kitchen and I love her.
