In today’s world of kitchen remodeling, there are numerous options when it comes to countertops. From concrete, to laminate, to granite, the choices are endless. When remodeling our kitchen, Joey and I decided to go a different route and experiment with plywood. Its natural look and economical price really appealed to us.
Plus, I could write on it when I needed a place to jot down important notes.
And if we ever got sick of having a countertop, we could easily pop it off and carry it to the garage for safe keeping.
Hey, guess what? I’m just kidding. Sort of. We did have plywood countertops for about 2 months while we waited to order our real counters and have them installed.
Well, they were installed about 7 weeks ago. I’ve just been super slow about getting around to posting pictures of them because my camera is too busy snapping photos of this gal.
Anyways, after living with plywood countertops, which absorb anything that drips on them, we decided granite was a better option.
Notice the clutter in the above photo. I could’ve straightened things up before taking a picture of my kitchen, but I decided to keep it real, a.k.a I was too lazy to do it. That is exactly what my kitchen looks like at this very moment, except I’ve since eaten more of the candy (it’s totally for the trick or treaters) out of the bowl on the island.
P.S. The kitchen still isn’t quite finished yet. We need to install the a few cabinet doors, trim and toe kicks, as well as the under cabinet lightening. We’ll get to it as soon as our baby stops being so cute and allows us to actually look at something else.
