Effectively, we did it! Some of you would possibly remember we’ve got (properly, *I* have) been desirous to update our kitchen island on the cabin. I thought of a few options and was shopping around for fabricated stone once i got here throughout AirStone™ on, what else, Pinterest.
Earlier than I show you the big reveal, here are a few photos from Airstone’s webpage:
AirStone™ provides this small grill a in-built look
Love the way it breaks up all of the wooden on this piece
Who would guess this wasn’t real stone
So here’s our boring, blah kitchen island earlier than AirStone™.
And right here she is all prettied up.
If you’ve never heard of AirStone™, then you’re probably wondering what it’s. Mainly, it’s a manufactured stone veneer that has about eighty% recycled materials. It’s lighter than real stone (waaaaay lighter) and is eco-pleasant, which is a large plus in my guide. Installation is tremendous easy. You want a hacksaw, adhesive and caulking gun, or if you utilize the adhesive that AirStone™ sells, you’ll simply want a putty knife to make use of with their adhesive. We additionally opted for a workbench to make reducing simpler, but it’s not essential.
At first, I was uncertain concerning the restricted color choices. They only supply two; Spring Creek, which is primarily gray tones, and Autumn Mountain, which is more in the tan family. We opted for Autumn Mountain. I’m happy with the color, however I painted a small piece of leftover stone to see the way it looks and yes, it’s completely paintable! I additionally checked their FAQ’s they usually addressed this and recommend concrete stain. It’s good to know that you can customise the colors.
We started by making ready the house, overlaying the flooring, and establishing the workbench.
It took us about two hours to get to this point. Not unhealthy considering Fisherman appears at everything for 10 minutes before adhering it. You can do it a lot faster.
Cutting was pretty simple on the primary day. We accomplished the entrance solely on Saturday, then Sunday did the sides. Day two was harder as the hacksaw blade acquired dull. My recommendation is have an additional blade useful.
AirStone™ has three totally different kinds of stone tiles. Corner tiles such as you see below, common subject tiles and edge tiles. We wanted all three for this challenge, however for many initiatives, like a straight wall as an example which may meet walls on both sides, you will solely want the sector tiles.
Edited: I decided to remove the chair covers we put on a number of months ago. I believe the previous ones look higher and not as ‘busy’.
So there you might have it, Section 1 of our kitchen updates. See the cabinet in the corner with out a door We’re going to take out the center panel and put some glass in there as a substitute and we will most likely try this with the set between the fridge and the oven too. Additionally, we’re planning on placing some molding above the cabinets, shifting the microwave to above the stove and some different decorative particulars whereas we’re at it.
