First, let me start by saying this military home we are living in is a complete gift. An answered prayer for me, set in a wonderful neighborhood overlooking a canyon in San Diego. And did I mention the full basketball court in the backyard. Yes, yes, yes and thank you again Lord.

It came complete with a white kitchen, again dream come true, I love white kitchens. So you can imagine my disappointment when the housing company came knocking and wanted to switch out the cream stone-looking countertops to dark brown. Sadness. So here's a snap of what it looks like now and here's my plan on how to break up all the mismatched browns! 

Contact paper and faux subway tile will be my new best friends.
