Not loving it. Every countertop resurfacing, I'm sad to say, looks like a resurfacing job to me. I'm certain this was a hot mess to work with, and a tremendous amount of work for those who did it, but it just looks way out of place here. If you had a square-edged, uninterrupted slab to cover, it would be more believable. The overhang on the top, along with the old enameled sink that was kept instead of a stainless model (and not an undermounted sink), are dead giveaways that it's a resurfacing job. Also, shame on the people who neglected to mention they couldn't apply this on the vertical surface, and had to use a stainless strip. A DIY tutorial should point out issues this one. From a design standpoint, the concrete looks downright kooky next to the honeyed oak cabinetry. I like eclectic, but this is just a clash of pretty much everything -- including the Captain Bligh lights stuck into a coffered ceiling, next to -- cracked ice panels under fluoro bulbs?!? Yikes.
