Home Improvement - Walnut Counter Top

As home improvement projects go, this new walnut counter top had to be one of the least expensive yet most dramatic changes to a room.  The kitchen originally had a raised granite counter between the kitchen and living room and I could never understand why the builder didn't make it into a functional bar where people could sit and visit with the person doing the cooking.  My kitchen is also very large so there was actually too much granite making it a bit cold.  Being the nature lover that I am, I decided to warm it up and make it into a bar at the same time. 

My first step was to call my contractor to see if he could duplicate some ideas I had found on Houzz.  He spoke to a friend who recommended Matt Clark of Matt's Woodworks in Shasta City to build the bar.  I started following Matt on Instagram to see his projects and I knew right away that he was the right guy for the job.  The best part was that I was able to watch the progress as Matt created his work of art!

Fortunately my husband had a fishing tournament at Lake Shasta around the time that the bar was finished, so we were able to save money by having him pick it up.  Next step was to have our contractor Sean Cornell of Cornell Construction do the installation.  Sean was able to use invisible brackets so I achieved the clean lines that I was looking for. 

I highly recommend both of these resources for any projects you are thinking about.  They are professional, communicative and artists!  I'm in love with the finished product.
