Formica, Yes, Formica

Formica seems to have a bad name associated with it. As if it's too embarrassing to be the one to say they kind of actually still like the stuff. Hey, I'm down with it. Although it definitely helps that it's kind of retro. Check it out.

With summer coming to a close, I was going through some photos and found these. We spent a long weekend in Alpena at my sister-in-law's boyfriend's family's (got that all?) cottage. It was the perfect cottage on Lake Huron with a perfect beach and the perfect space. had Formica in the kitchen. It was totally retro and, it just worked. The tops were white with this gold veining. They were sweet and accented with these vintage wood stained cabinets that they painted. A little cottage kitchen make over on a budget. Nice. Something that works and feels right in a space, no matter if it is a current trend or a blast from the past.
