Formica ideas

Here's a link to some (new) old formica styles. They can be special ordered at the big box stores for the same price as standard styles and they can be ordered in 4x8,10,12 5x8,10,12 or 6x8,10,12 ft. I recently ordered a 5x8 sheet because it was the most efficient use of material. It took about a week to get here and cost about $1.80 sq.ft. Just take the style number and description with you if you decide to order some.

(hope the link works)

I love Boomerangs!

The "Aqua Boomerang" pattern was put in my Grandmother's new house in 1955! I have always loved that pattern! In one of her baths they had the same pattern in a bright sunny yellow. It would be a super-kewl choice for a 50's-vintage Airstream!

Wow, an eight page document that "weighs" over a gig?

Needs to go on a diet!

Mind you, it has a bunch of really nice styles...

Yes, sorry, I meant a meg. But I still say it's overweight. LOL!

Grin - and here I was thinking it was a pretty small file size for 8 pages of fairly good quality pictures. But then, I deal with lots of really, really big files every day.

Annette and I went to Home depot this Thursday and ordered a 4'X8' sheet of #6940-58/Skylark Boomerang. Total including tax was $56.10. That is enough to do our kitchen and bath counters in our Excella. Whoever the guy that ordered it for us talked to said they a a lot of Boomerang left but they would not replace if something happens down the road. Not sure what other colors are available. Should look pretty cool. We also found an oval stainless steel sink for the bath up on E-bay. I'll post pic's when we get it done. Found a guy who will put the Formica on for around $75.00. Yip-ee
Joe

It looks like they changed the destination on the link... I've read recently that they're discontinuing a lot of the older styles. We're re-doing a '73 Shasta and have started looking for formica ideas again, only to find them limited.
