Is it possible to get brand new, durable and modern looking counters for your kitchen without spending the kind of money that granite, quartz, and butcherblock demand?

DIY Stainless Steel Countertops

 We came to think of stainless steel and figured it would be pretty awesome to have that for counters.  Home Depot quoted us $150/square foot which would have ended up costing about $3000 for our tiny 20 square feet counter.

 Well, first of all we had to make a plywood model of our counter. We removed the sink and cut the plywood to fit our counter. We also cut a hole out for the sink and then brought it to the shop.

 Next we got all the pieces home and started assembling. First we put some liquid nails right on our old laminate counters and then fit the plywood on top. To make sure it was properly secure, we also put in a few screws for good measure.

And that’s basically it. Easy enough, right! We put some weights and clamps on the counter, and let everything set overnight, and the next day we got to working on installing our new stainless steel sink.

All in all, this was a pretty easy project that didn’t take that long and the result is fabulous! Stainless steel counters are super easy to keep clean and you don’t have to be as careful as with other materials
