Tada!!!We got her done.The laminate was in fact a sheet(just rolled up to fit in the box).We did use the heat gun to loosen the old stuff and it worked great,don't know if we could of done it without that.We faked the backsplash with glue on vinyl floor tiles but it looks and works fine.I don't have before pics but here's the after.Thanks so much for your inout everyone,you were more help than you know.
