new wood countertops installed (Yay!)
I've been lurking here for a long time and have learned oh so much from the members of this forum. Thank you all for that! I'm de-lurking to share a photo of our new counters. We're in the midst of a kitchen makeover -besides the new countertops, we'll be adding a backsplash and painting the cabinets.
The counters are reclaimed Douglas fir from area industrial buildings. We're totally thrilled with the way they look. When the builder/installer left he told me to go ahead and beat them up because we can always sand and oil them to be as good as new. That's what a clumsy girl like myself likes to hear.
