Reader's Countertop Makeover

I started this blog a couple years back after taking some time off from work after the birth of my second child.  I missed design and felt out of the loop after months of "baby/kid"time.  Blogging served as a way to reconnect, be it virtually, and have a place to compile images I loved and document projects I was working on in my own space.  It also held me accountable to finish those projects.  I had no plan or direction, the blog took on its own life and I have made so many friends and contacts through it.  I am so thankful for that!

One of the best parts has been hearing from my readers.  I remember the first year, wondering if anyone was even reading... being shocked when I got a comment.  And then I started getting emails asking how to do certain things, so I my house became a canvas for DIYs.  I can't tell you how it makes my day to know I have inspired some of you,
and that are you actually doing some of my DIYs!
OK, so I need to share this with you... I feel like a proud mama...

Check out Maddy's countertop makeover. 
She used my Faux Carrerra Marble DIY and transformed her dark laminate...

 Primer
 Painted!

She practiced on a small side table first and then did this project.  I am so impressed by her! 


It is amazing how much brighter her kitchen is with lighter counters.


Thanks for sharing this Maddy! You get serious high fives for a job well done!

 And keep the projects coming,  I love to see what you guys are up to.

What a great improvement. Question Danika...do you think this same technique could work on granite? I'm sure you're wondering why I'd paint granite but it's a small powder room with VERY bright orange granite and I'd love to tone it down.

That looks incredible!!! Holy smokes, I was a doubting Thomas for sure. Good work.

I have the Ikea Docksta table from your original post and almost died when I saw how great yours looked! One day I'll bribe a friend into doing it for me :)

I'm totally identifying with the beginning of your post. I'm still in the "is anyone actually reading my blog" phase. It's all about patience, right? Your blog rocks for inspiration!
