I went to the remnant yard to pick out countertops for our bathrooms. And it was FUN. There are a million different remnants and they are all the same price so you can get some great deals. Here is what I "took home."
(some "crema marfil" for the bathroom)
("venetian gold" for the laundry room sink)
I am still waiting for full slabs of the granite I want to come into our stone yard. Then I'll pick out the exact piece of stone for our kitchen countertops. I went a couple of weeks ago thinking they would have it...they didn't. Oh well, I hope it'll be worth the wait.
