52 Snapshots of Life; Week 37: Labor

I have terrible bathroom countertops, and not a lot of dough to replace them, and not a lot of time or patience.  I also am a little inept at DIY-type stuff, and am certainly do not have an artsy-craftsy bone in my body!  What a conundrum.  Having to constantly rely on others to get things like this done can often be disconcerting -- or, quite simply, a pain in the... !

A couple weeks ago, I saw a video online where a young woman did a tutorial on how to put contact paper on a kitchen countertop.   It looked like something even I could handle, and inexpensive, and it couldn't be worse than the 1972 countertops I have in place already.  Sure, it probably won't stand up to water for more than a few months, but it's only me here, and I'm not sitting here pouring water onto the counters or anything like that.  If worst comes to worst, just do it again -- I still have a whole roll of the stuff left over!

So, I gave it a try.  If I do say so myself, I think they came out pretty good!!  Each one took less than a half hour!

The fruits of my labor:
