November 16, 2012 in Before & After
We are located on the Ocean on the Eastern shore of Canada. Two months ago we purchased a 116 year old Victorian farmhouse. So here are some of the beginnings of our renovation of this 3400 sq. ft. home.

Terrific look! I particularly like the oil rubbed bronze hardware and faucet. Are your counter tops stone or solid surface. They have a nice honed look.

The countertops are actually custom made with laminate, and they have a 45 degree edge that is stained wood. The newer laminates on the market have beautiful designs and finishes contained in them.

Congratulations on your new home!

Absolutely stunning! I can't believe that the countertops are laminate. You are right, laminate has come a long way. You have exquisite taste. Keep the pictures coming!

The mosaic tile backsplash is gorgeous and really complements your other choices. I love that you picked a real color rather than white or a very neutral tile. It adds so much more personality to the space!

Great Choices! I like all the details that you choose mosaic tile backsplash, faucet, the cabinet hardware, and flooring.

The range is by Fridgidaire Professional series, also the over the range microwave, fan was designed to match the series. We also have the refrigerator, and dishwasher of this series. I am going to upload a picture of that area of the kitchen.

The laminate was purchased as a sheet, then it was applied to solid ply, we did a 45 degree front edge, and finished the bottom lip with more laminate. Any laminate counter top supplier should be able to order sheets.

Wow! Just stunning! We reno'd our kitchen 2 years ago from oak to white cabinets, bronze hardware and black counters (we already had the hardwood floors) so I am partial to this look and yours is fabulous! I'm in NB and my sisters sister-in-law owns a B&B in Tignish. Can I knock on your door when I'm there and get a real life tour?LOL

So happy for you! I too love the delightful transformation. We are working on an old house we bought that had a devastating fire. We're doing most of the work ourselves and it's more than 300 miles from our current home. It's coming along nicely. It takes a lot of work to bring a 100 yr. old house up to code.
