My Latest Creation

Still working on the resident house and I must say that it has never looked cleaner! For years I had piece of wobbly laminate counter top sitting on top of the dishwasher. I dismantled the frameing when I sanded the floors sometime around 1999 and never put it back because I always meant to replace the counter top. Well I finally took care of the problem. I made a mold and poured a concrete counter top. It was a small piece, 27" X 26" so I made it in the basement and polished it in the back yard. I got this done last week between orgaizing the basement and the attic and dusting everywhere. I tried to be a little artistic and made two triangle shaped inserts using broken glass as the aggregate but they didn't come out the way that I imagined. I thought more glass would be visible after the whole thing was polished. It doesn't look bad but may have been better without the inserts. Here are the pictures

and for all you house porn addicts, here is the rest of the kitchen from assorted angles!

I kind of like the little tiangles... they give it character.
