We recently revealed our new DIY dining table, complete with a dark green-black marble top. This isn’t the first (or last) piece of marble or granite in our house. In fact, we have quite a bit in 1 1/4 inch thick slabs and tiles. I thought I’d give a pictoral view showcasnig the granite and marble we have in our home.
All three of our bathrooms have granite-topped vanities.
Our master bathroom color is Galaxy Black:
The basement bathroom counters are Verde Maritoka:
Part of my office desktop has Carrera marble, while the other areas have Brazilian Cherry.
Each bathtub has a matching granite sill to rest on. Both the main and master bathrooms have marble tub surrounds, too.
The master bathroom floor is covered in white marble and absolute black granite checkerboard. The main bathroom has white marble floors in a brick lay pattern.
We decided to install granite and marble as some of our window sills to protect them from moisture.
Our master bathroom has Carrera Marble:
The half wall by our stairway has a brown granite topper:
Our love of marble extends to a few pieces of furniture other than our dining table. Two small side tables in our guest bedroom have marble tile tops.
This little table had a clear glass top, but it was easily replaced by one 12 inch square tile, left over from our bathroom remodel.
Why limit marble to counter tops when you can have a marble table lamp like this:
Just to recap, we have 4 countertops, 3 tables, 6 window and tub sills, 2 shower surrounds, 1 lamp and we haven’t remodeled our kitchen.
Why do we have so much marble and granite you ask? We love the timeless look, durability and we can get remnant slabs for a great price. And, it’s almost easier to work with than wood.
