Hello my friends ~ I have missed you so ~
My computer went on the fritz and then Mr. V. decided he wanted to do a countertop restoration ~ sigh ~ at Christmas time?
I did not like my old counter tops. They were pressed board wooden look ~ and with an old house, they were old ~
Mr. Vintage heard about the product Rustoleum countertop restoration. He decided we needed to try it ;-)
We sanded down the countertops ~
If you decide to do this, PLEASE remember to tape and cover your cupboards. This stuff is really messy ~
You paint the cupboard with the base coat and while it is still wet one person sprays the adhesive and the other uses a little spreader to spread the paint chips. The counter is very rough at this point ~ then you sand them down and apply your top coat ~
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my countertops now ~ just beautiful and the best part is ....
While the "paint was drying", we went to an estate sale and just LOOK what Mr. Vintage picked up for me ~
A beautiful vintage dough board. Ofcourse, it didn't look like this when we bought it, but Mr. Vintage worked his magic and oiled it with mineral oil. It has such a beautiful patina ~
It goes perfect with my HUGE vintage rolling pin.
Now I'm off to make some bread ~ yummmmmm
What are you doing today?
Are you ready for Christmas?
After the counter restoration ~ I am ready for Christmas ~ ahhhhh ~ time to relax
