No April Fools day joke today, especially after all the worried comments I got when posting about great April fools day ideas the other day Let's talk about DIY Kitchen Countertops instead, that feels like a safe topic to me.
When Justin and I first started our adventures as DIY homeowners, it didn't seem like there were that many options for countertops especially great options that we could afford.
Okay, it wasn't THIS long ago, but you get the picture, right? (via) don't you love the dancing vegetables wallpaper border?
Fast forward a few years, and thanks to the internet, there's lots of information (and pictures!) out there about many more DIY countertop surfaces. Not only that, but prices on natural and engineered stone have come down a bit, making them more affordable options for the average homeowner. If putting most of a kitchen renovation budget into countertops isn't your cup of tea, there are DIY options out there now with excellent online tutorials. In a nutshell, there are lots of ways to get the look you want for the price you are willing to pay.
Take a look at some of the great DIY kitchen countertop options that are out there:
