Finally, after 2 or 3 years of dithering (and being encouraged and prodded along by a friend - thanks, Andrew!) we chose a granite countertop to replace the ceramic tile counters that were in the kitchen when we moved in over 20 years ago. The update feels fresh and we like the look - hope you do too!
There are only a couple of AFTER photos because we weren't happy with any of the pictures that we took. It sure makes me appreciate photo-stylists who do magazine layouts! I'll take another batch of photos later this week.
