After the whole butcher block countertop fiasco we lucked out with a great deal at Home Depot to order some nice quartz countertops by Silestone for our kitchen.
Here are some samples of the color: Bianco River
It's hard to tell from the photos but it has a slightly matte finish in white with grey river rock-like striations. It reminds me of a more Americana version of carrara marble. I just came up with that term so no making fun!
In about 4 weeks or so we will be able to show you them installed with an undermount sink and our cool faux-ceiling tile back splash! We can't wait!
