If you can afford granite counter tops then that is the way to go! I love granite but granite was just not in our budget.

Why Formica? First of all, Laminate/Formica is inexpensive. Second, It’s relatively easy to install. Third, laminate looks great! Dale had never worked with Formica before, he learned by watching a YouTube video! It’s wonderful how you can find all kind of DIY projects on the internet.

Tools and supplies needed, contact cement (CC was 50% less at Walmart, then at the popular hardware stores), dowels, roller, and file, trim router and flush trim bit. Tip: make sure to clean the router bit with paint thinner frequently to avoid clue build up.

We purchased the Formica at CabinetMaker Warehouse. They have such a wide selection! We paid $250.00 for the Formica. Supplies we spent roughly $100.00 and another $100.00 on the wood to make the counter tops. Total of $450.00! Verses $3500.00 to install granite counter tops! If your willing to roll up your sleeves and Do It Yourself it will benefit you!

I plan to continue to blog about our kitchen renovation and at the end will give you the grand total. Keep tuning in!

That’s my Superman!
