No matter how I tried to camouflage it with garage sale art there was no hiding the shabby materials and crooked cabinets, and I really couldn’t ignore that it was falling down. There was a point when I considered shoving a two by four under the main cabinet because it was sagging and the nails (not screws) were pulling away from the wall from which it was precariously suspended. Oh, and take note, the cabinets to the left were hung so low it wasn’t Thanksgiving at our house if somebody hadn’t opened a cabinet door and had a wine bottle drop and shatter, or a bottle of sparkling cider explode all over the floor.

These are quartz counters. Beautiful, but hard to work with. Quartz chips easily and your really can’t sand the edge into a nice bull nose curve — but I think this looks just right.
