Our new kitchen counters arrived this week. It's no surprise I ordered the exact same ones I had before since it took so long to pick them out the first time. Did I mention the old counters were damaged when they were left on the front porch and then it rained? Even though they were covered up with a tarp, the counters sucked up the humidity in the air and they swelled up.
So we waited two weeks to get our new counters and they were installed on Wednesday. The installer did a great job lining up the seams and caulking around the edges.
Funny story about our kitchen sink though. When the plumber came to hook it back up he noticed it was bent on one side and it didn't sit flush with the counters. So now we're getting a new kitchen sink too. I wonder just how many mistakes workers can make and insurance will pay for? It's mind boggling to me. There have been careless mistakes, like yanking our oven out too hard and breaking the handle. Sometimes I think people would be more gentle if it were their own house. Oh well. We're getting a new sink, hopefully today. I'll keep you posted!
In case you're wondering these counters are by Formica in Flint Crystal Etchings with rounded edges.

Isn't this shot cute? Just in time for Valentine's Day, a heart reflection. ♥
So glad to have our kitchen back in working order for now. All that's left is caulking the nail holes on the quarter round, painting the quarter round and trim, tiling the back splash, and getting a new sink.
Have a great weekend!!
