Wow! I just noticed this is my 50th post! I can't believe I've actually kept this blog up for a few months now!
Anyway, we just had our kitchen countertops and backsplash replaced this week! Gone is the green fermica and white country ivy tile! We went with a black granite countertop that has splotches of brown in it - it's called Indian Copper Brown. And our backsplash looks like faux ceiling tiles - we went with a color called Bermuda Bronze. The manufacturer makes it sound like anyone could put it in, but it took the tile guys about 5 hours and they made it look MUCH better than we could have ever done. It looks so great!
If you are looking to replace your kitchen countertops with granite, you have to call the guys we used - Stonemen Granite and Marble. They were great to work with, very professional and got the job done in a matter of days - and with very little mess. They are also way less than someone like Lowe's or Home Depot because you cut out the middle men working with them. They also do special cuts and little "extras" at no extra cost. Tell them Christy sent ya!
