They used plywood as a base and purchased the stainless steel from a local sheet metal dealer which saved them huge dollars. Total cost of the countertop was $400 (about $20 per sqft.) They called in a pro to help bend the metal but besides that they did all of the rest of the work themselves and ended up with a professional looking countertop that won’t stain or rust and is durable enough to withstand hot pans and spills of all types.

    Sex and the City seems to have a polarizing effect on both men and women… people either love the movie or they hate it

    I really like the blue walls in Carrie’s apt. makeover.

    Besides being my fav movie of all time, I adore Amelie’s apartment. It’s probably too far-fetched to pull off in real life but the textures and rich colors are beautiful.

      Yes! Amelie’s flat is incredible. Her Paris is another character.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to find out the paint color used in Carrie Bradshaw’s apt. in “The Sex and the City”, movie?
    I would also like to know if it would still be possible to get the shower curtain?

      Have you tried reaching out to the show stylists? It’s unfortunate that these types of things are listed publicly as you’re not the only one who would love to know these details.

    Does anyone know where I can get a picture of the table decoration / cutlery / glassware, etc. at Carrie’s engagement party meal? I recall it was all pink, red and gold.

    Sex and the City theme makeover idea may sound cool for those people who love this movie. If you want this theme for your room apartment, maybe it’s good to analyze first the whole feature of your home if that theme fits. You may ask the opinion of your friends or an expert about it.

    Our house is currently under renovation, and I’m looking for some design inspirations for our master’s bedroom. And I would love to have something like this for our room.

    One of my cousin has these steel countertops in her kitchen, i got my finger cut once from the edge of it, may be it was pretty old and needed repair, i guess granite or wooden ones are safer than this.
