I don’t know about you but kitchen makeovers make we weak in the knees. It’s the space that often gets the most use and when it’s functional and beautiful everyone is happy…especially the main cook in the house. We are going to be embarking on our very own kitchen remodel soon (Eek!) and I’ve been gathering my wants/needs/and have-to-have lists for some time now. How is it that my have-to-have’s always end up being so expensive?! Sigh.
One of the most important components of the kitchen is the counter top right? I mean who wants to remodel a kitchen and be stuck with boring black laminate. Not me (but hey if that’s your thing you rock it). So after much debate and deliberation (and a serious look at our budget) we decided marble was out and concrete was in. Do I feel like I’m settling? Nope. Let’s just look at how beautiful these countertops can be.

I've been seriously considering concrete for a few of my counter areas when we do a mini-remodel. Seems like a practical solution all around. I've been digging around to see if I can find a way to make them look like they have veining like marble, but so far no real luck there. 🙁 Can't wait to see how yours turn out!
We have been debating concrete tops as well, although our kitchen refresh is still going to be a while. You know how that goes, minds change given time! Can’t wait to hear all about how you did it, and how you like it!
Will you stain the concrete white because you wanted marble at one point?

I’ll definitely let you know! The concrete already comes white actually!
