I used this for the past two years. It cleaned up well, it was bright and cheery. We got a lot of compliments on that countertop. It was a dollar store tablecloth and it started to get a little ratty looking so I found something a little higher end... some oil cloth.

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Countertops on the Cheap
I love a lot of things about my house but one of the things I love the most is my pantry. It's like a walk in closet for the kitchen. It has lots of storage and I wanted a place where I could plug things in and leave them plugged in like the food processor. It's so much more convenient when you need to use it. Our kitchen countertop is Corian. I love it but it was a little pricey so the mister came up with something, well, cheaper. First he cut a sheet of melamine that he found in the cull wood at Home Depot to fit the top of the cabinets. Then he took a dollar store vinyl tablecloth, wrapped it around the melamine, and stapled it.
