Copper or zinc? Which one do you like better?
Still farting around with finishing touches and decided to explore the possibility of DIY countertops. Cost is a factor and although I do really like the dreamy marfil Caeserstone, my gut tells me that it will be more than a couple bucks. So. Loving Circuspeanut's copper counter and Angie's copper fridge led me to think about a DIY countertop.
The chunk of counter & BS on the left of the stove is supposed to represent zinc and to the right is obviously copper. Plus I have the copper apron sink with the patina on the front. Would a copper counter be too much of a good thing? DH likes the copper because it's warmer vs. the cooler zinc. I like both but am not sure if I'd be either overkilling the copper or messing it up with another metal (chrome stove top, SS fridge).
There will be a copper sheet on the wall behind the stove and range hood for sure, so that's a done deal.
AND.... I hope that this kitchen remodel will be starting in the next month too!! We're getting really close to the tear out and that's feeling kinda exciting. I sent a letter to the Amish folks that did Badgergals lovely curvy kitchen and am waiting to hear back from them. A lady that I work with had the exact same people do her cabs and I just stopped over there today to check them out.. very nice. She got a great price, too.
Anyway... copper or zinc or neither? Thoughts?
