Countertops….Done!

Well, I finally got it finished!  The spray painted countertops…..What a hoot!!  The hardest part was removing said countertops from said kitchen and taking them OUT into the back yard, cos’ you CANNOT spray paint in the kitchen….

just sayin’…

This is a photo of the less than joyful husband because after all, football was on!  It was a hot mess taking those things out!  My kitchen was TRASHED!

Everything came off the counters and out from under the sink, because we got a new sink….that is what I have been waiting on….and of course when Steve was disconnecting it….things broke….HOT MESS!

It did not take me very long at all to paint the countertops and we had them back in the house before Bama kicked off at 7:00…that’s just how I roll….

New sink and faucet!  I found the sink on Craigslist for $50!!!  PERFECTION!!!!

What do you think???  I really like it!  I didn’t do anything special to spray paint it…just point and spray….light coats….and then I rubbed it down and sort of buffed it out afterwards…so far…so good…

The worst thing that can happen is I get new countertops down the road, which was always the plan anyway….this is just an “interim” fix…

LOVE my sink!  You can’t tell much about the faucet but I got it at Lowes, oil rubbed bronze…I still need to change the ceiling fan in here…that is next….

Steve is thrilled…

just sayin’…

I am linking up with Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

  17. Wow, this looks really good. You made excellent choices! I know about the mess, too.
    Just did my kitchen back-splashes and now I have my fridge in the kitchen rather than the dining room!
    Awesome :)

  18. This might seem like a dumb question, but why can't you spray paint in the kitchen? Especially if you are only spray painting like 4 feet of stuff?? I adon't know if our counters come off, because the cabinets have sides all the way down on each of the ends (its a VERY small counter area- 2 feet or so on each side of a large sink). Any suggestions?
