Lately we've been working on the kitchen area. We decided on a "satin stainless" laminate by Wilsonart for the countertop:
Since someone had cut a huge square out of the original formica, we had to replace it. We also replaced a quite a bit of the wood due to previous water damage.
I really love the neutral color of the satin stainless, it seems to be tough stuff and looks really nice down. Above is a photo of what the material looks like in use.
We are also changing things about a bit concerning the original cupboard spaces. We also painted the brown plastic sink with white appliance paint and it looks great. Photos in the future.
