This week, I realized that the counter top that I so painstakingly faux finished in the built-in hutch has just become an area to collect junk. Bills, mail, batteries (not sure why dead batteries keep turning up there like dead beetles or flies) scraps of paper, CD's, phone books, and dust. So I decided to make it functional.
It's always been too dark for a buffet, but a trip to Menards (local home improvement store) and $24.95 later, I think it's super duper! It's the perfect Transformation Tuesday feature. I installed a kit with 5 puck lights and it didn't take long. Yes, I did it by myself!
Check out these pictures and then tell me what transformation you've done lately in the Linky section below. Did you make over a room, a T2T piece of furniture? Did you make over your schedule? Or your file system? Did you lose a few pounds? Tell us about your transformation and post a link to your blog post.
I still need to tack the wires up with the special little doohickeys made for that. Just didn't have any on hand right now.
Yep, that counter is fake. It's all paint and poly. See the transformation here.
Here's a closeup of a puck light. They can be recessed (which involves drilling LARGE holes for the light so that it can sit up under the counter) or they can be surface mounted (which is what I did because I didn't feel destructive enough to drill huge holes).
