In between sanding, priming and painting the cupboards - it sure takes a long time for oil paint to dry. Originally I wanted a dark counter top. Now I'm thinking that a light counter top might be the way to go. We took out suspended cupboards where the phone is to the end of the countertop so lost some space. The yellow is where the backsplash will be. I may try and swing the counter around and make an island. It is a work still in progress. Thank god for all my good friends who have helped me out with this.
