new counter top

As with all projects, they seem to grow. My DW thought a new sink would be fun and a new counter top tp go with with it and a new backsplash. of course we needed new fawcets. taking the sink and counter out was not as hard as I thought it would be however,(there is always a however) the drain pipes didn't match up to the new sink. The old sink drained from the right hand side the new one was suposed to drain from the left, but after much fiddleing, muttering, and a few extra words the job is done .here are before and after pictures.

and after

I used contact cement to attach it to the walls ,first I made sure there was nothing loose on the surface then I gave the surface 2 coats of glue and one on the arborite .so far it looks good I will check back with a report on how well it held in about 4 years ,that's when I expect I will be able to afford something newer.
