Being an artist, and faux painting my clients homes and businesses all day - I don't often have the time or energy to add my creative touches to my own home. However, I recently moved into a home that was built in the 1970's - and it was in desperate need of a "face lift". Here is what I have done with my kitchen counters and back splash.
~ 1970's Butcher Block Formica Counter tops - Before, also note the dark cabinet color ~
~ Kitchen Counter tops After ~
~ They have been faux painted to look like granite ~
~ And I've added pressed copper tiles for the back splash ~
~ I'm pretty pleased with how the counter tops, back splash, and painted cabinets have all come together ~
