Here's how the kitchen looked when he bought it.

He writes: The old counters from 1940 were laminate with a coved linoleum toward the back. These 70's or 80's counters were some kind of laminate with the coving removed. 5 years ago we went with all linoleum but there were issues with water damage near the sink. This newest rendition is laminate by Wilsonart. The materials were just shy of $100 and the labor to install was just under $200. I reused all the trim and the original is just under the laminate. They key to making laminate not look like shit is the metal border. No 80's wood
