Countertop Teaser

Our Kitchen countertops got installed this morning. We chose 1 1/4" thick Black Impala granite with a pencil edge. The granite was cut and installed by Renaissance Stone in Wallingford, CT. They did a good job for the most part, but we weren't as pleased with the installers. They showed up late both times (template and install), which was frustrating because R had to take time off from work to wait for them. But the important thing is that the countertops are in, and look amazing! I love the color of the Black Impala... it's a compromise. I wanted gray, R wanted black. Black Impala is a mid-dark gray with a slight bluish tint. The stone has a great variation to it (not a solid color, but not crazy busy).

So here's the teaser pic.. More to come in a formal countertop blog entry, and I promise they won't be cell phone quality :)
