Kitchen remodel reveal + a $5,000 countertop makeover giveaway!





We did it. We're on the other side of our rental remodel in Fort Collins, CO and living in the heart of the Bull River Valley, Montana! Life has changed a ton for us in two months. We went from a 3 bedroom 2 bath, 1700 square foot home to a room in my moms house for all four of us. Moving was a lesson in letting go of unnecessary clutter, saving ONLY the things we love and finding very clever ways to store the things we use on a daily basis. It's been a MAJOR adjustment, but not a bad one! 


$5,000 countertop makeover giveaway by Wilsonart X The Market Beautiful!


To recap the last year of our life, we moved from a rental in Loveland, CO to another rental in Fort Collins, CO to remodel it for our awesome landlords! We lived in a construction zone for a few months while parenting and planning markets in between. It's been busy!




Our landlords wanted something light, airy, trendy and updated...on a budget. The kitchen was really closed in...so many weird walls and cabinets! We knew opening the whole thing up would update the space SO much! Tanner installed base cabinets from Lowes for the island and then trimmed out the front. We painted the cabinets with a Behr paint called Grey Squirrel that I had matched from one of my old mirrors and then installed matte black cup pulls.



We knew adding marble countertops would be the icing on the cake, but it's SO darn expensive!!!! I searched for an alternative and found a LAMINATE from Wilsonart!! Laminate!? The same thing the existing countertops were made of? YES. Guys, it's a game changer! Their new styles and patterns look INCREDIBLE!!! It's about $33 per square foot installed which is so cheap for something that looks nearly identical to real marble!



Fabrication and installation was super easy and quick. We had someone come out and measure the countertops with a laser and then about 10 days later, they were out and installing the countertop. Installation only took about 2 hours!! I'll be using this in the next home we do and I highly recommend it for our clients and friends!



Wilsonart was a dream to work with, AND they want to provide someone with an amazing opportunity to win a countertop makeover!! They'll provide materials, fabrication and installation up to $5,000. We're honored to work with companies like Wilsonart and we're so thankful to them for providing such a generous giveaway!
