Our granite countertops are finally finished! Even the corbels on the back of the bar are painted and installed! Yay!!! I can't tell you how good it feels to be finished with this project.

Carolina Stone Marble and Granite installed the granite. They gave us a great price and did a wonderful job installing it. We had them install granite in our basement bathroom a few years ago, as well. Mr. Fanatic installed the under cabinet lighting and the backsplash, but if we had it to all over again, we probably would have had them install the backsplash because it would have been finished a lot quicker! Oh, well, you live and learn! Mr. F did a wonderful job, though and saved us some cash!
I bought the corbels from Hardware Resources. You can Google them and find several places online that sell these at a discount. One of the secrets to paying less for corbels is to get a paint grade wood such as birch instead of maple.
A closer look at the backsplash installed on a diagonal with bronze accent tiles.
I am loving my new large single stainless steel sink! Carolina Stone gave me a great price on the sink. Lowe's price wasn't anywhere close.
Oh, so pretty!
I will be sharing the steps on installing the granite and backspash on another day.
I hope everyone is keeping cool and had a wonderful weekend. We went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D and loved it! I teared up a couple of times and especially at the end..... I am such a softy!
