The infamous camo countertops

Okay, so apparently I generated some interest with the Random Dozen as to how a person who is not camo-inclined lives with camo countertops. I don't know. I try to ignore them as much as possible.

The countertops were actually installed by a previous owner, and while we did make leaps and bounds in improving the house (brick patio out back, new flooring, paint jobs), those camo countertops remain.

Thankfully, not many people realize they are camo. Either that, or they're trying to pacify me. At any rate, it works.

And now, without further ado, my camouflage countertops.

They don't look so bad from further away.


But my kitchen is small, therefore, you pretty much are always close up...




And, if things in my house would quit BREAKING and FLOODING my kitchen, maybe I could get new countertops instead of having to focus on replacing the floor in the kitchen (oh, yeah...half an inch of water...thanks, fridge...). But, happily, I should have new floors this weekend. YEA!!!

now in stuttgart camo decor is all the rage! *smile* but it is the duck capital of the world so there is some serious hunting obsessions going on there.....

I just feel really blessed that I don't have shag carpet to go with the circa 1975 gold countertops in my kitchen!

I really don't think they look bad, but when something like that bothers you, you are constantly reminded of it.
Hooray for new floors though!

Whoa. They are camo! Well, it's kind of a subtle camo at least!

At first glance, they really do look like they could be marble. But after closer examination, I see the leafy pattern...I'm very curious about the previous owners.

Yay for new floors!!

Once again - let's not let my husband see these or else we will be undergoing a kitchen renovation in the near future.

You know, it actually doesn't look bad.
