This week we went to a few warehouses and tile showrooms around the city to try and find a countertop that would work in the kitchen. I went into the first few warehouses with an open mind….

I thought this granite would be interesting with a waterfall countertop, for a potential client maybe, but I don’t think I could handle it day after day…

Yeah none of these were going to work. Such a disappointing start to the day but then….

Carrara Marble and Tile had a couple of these bad boys in stock! Black Marquina Marble with just the right amount of veining, in a beautiful honed finish! I am in love!!

I was too excited to take a decent picture obviously.

Now to see if it’s in the budget….
