So, we put up the countertops on the particle board a few weeks ago (just to kick our butts into gear). We had to take them down unfortunately - since they are not sealed yet and we don't technically know how to install them. Hopefully we will be getting some much needed help from one of Matt's coworkers who does really awesome woodwork!
Here's a taste of what it will look like. Try to imagine the clear glass tile backsplash that is sitting in our basement....whomp. Oh well, you can only do one thing at a time!
