Kitchen Counter Time Capsule

I thought I would show you a little FHE project we did while our countertops were in transition. 

At this point we had taken off our old counters and our contractor had put on this plywood base that our granite would sit on.  We decided to put a little something special from our family into the project.  Kind of like a time capsule—one that will probably never be opened or seen again—but one that we know lies underneath our counters.

So here we are at work:


And this is what we came up with:

(And sorry--pencil on plywood doesn’t show up very well for pictures apparently)



Every member of the family was included in this project—even the furry one.


It was just a little project that didn’t take us very long—and was not done with great artistic abilities (as we have none in our family), but we all loved doing it and what it stands for. 

And I’m just sure that our countertops will stand a little taller and stronger now.



  1. cute! I do hope that in many years to come someone will find it and it will bring a smile to their face.

  2. Lobe it! I did the same thing when laying new flooring in a house i was renting. I drew all sorts of crazy pictures.


Thank you for your comments!
