Copper Countertops at Camp More

More Decorating

“If you are careful…if you use good ingredients, and you don’t take any shortcuts, then you can usually cook something very good. Sometimes it is the only worthwhile product you can salvage from a day…                                                     ― John Irving, The World According to Garp

I’ll admit that we do most of our cooking at the cabin (aka Camp More) outside on the grill.  However when we are inside, it is the amazing copper counter tops that serve as the stage for our recipes.   

I’m lucky that my husband was able to fabricate these with his exceptional skills and access to tools and materials. Because we were able to DIY these counters, they were fantastically inexpensive! (Have you priced counter tops lately?)  Copper counter tops are always changing, as they react to the acids from food.  We love the dynamic quality of our counters, and I think they look like well-worn leather.  We wax them periodically to protect them and give them a fresh shine.  They do require some maintenance, but it’s a small area, and because it’s the cabin, we don’t mind the extra care that they require.

If you’re thinking about trying copper in your kitchen, hopefully you will be inspired by our country cabin!  Whatever you cook today, enjoy your kitchen time!
