When we first put an offer on our new home we had only walked through the interior once. Honestly we really didn't care what it was like as long as the bones were good. With that in mind, there were some surprises that we found as we started looking closer at the house. Take the kitchen for example. Upon closer inspection we saw that those ugly fake marble countertops were really shelf paper. Why someone would shelf paper their entire countertop is beyond me. We were however pleasantly surprised to find a nice funky red/orange laminate complete with cold boomerang designs and chrome edges hiding under all that shelf liner and wall paper. I'll take that over fake marble any day.
