countertops pt 1

Things are starting to come together! Our biggest ticket item(s) - Silestone counter with new sink and faucet - are being installed on Friday so it's been great motivation to keep other parts moving. So while we're feeling the countertop love, the side counters got a nice upgrade today. They're Ikea Akerby in Birch, a nice easy change to replace our 80's laminate. Since most of our food prep is done on the peninsula it was an opportunity to use something more affordable and have the warmth of wood. The cabinets are only primed but I'm loving the change already. Their thunder will surely be stolen at the end of the week, so for now, we'll oogle over our new side countertops!
