I have a few pictures of my Honed Jet Mist granite. Please
know I am in the middle of a reno so I do not have a good
pic of the entire kitchen. Just the granite. At least you
have an idea of what the granite looks like. We love our
granite. It does not show finger marks, it has subtle
movement but a consistent color. I could not be more
pleased with how the seams, corners and edges turned out.
We had a good installer. I wish you luck,

I love your granite. Please do not be offended
when I say that I always thought the leather finish would
look like a car dash board. I realize now it is beautiful.
My husband liked the leather abosolute black granite
but I foolishly steered him away from this. Yours is
amazing. Good choice.

Wow. you must be so sad.

November and NHbaskets.
Fantastic stone. I love how the edges look and depth
of color.

Okay here are my pics, please know this is a reno
in progress.

99% Finished Kitchen--creamy white w/soapstone

Finally! Our kitchen is finished! I never thought the day would come, and boy am I enjoying it. I owe so much to this forum. I can't tell you how much you all helped me. Thank you!!! I hope I can help others in return.

Hope I'm not putting too many pictures!





soap stone

Quick description (feel free to contact me if you have questions)
-Soapstone: Julia
-Cabinets: Custom, inset/flush shaker style with single bead (waiting to see if we get some issues resolved before I recommend the cabinet maker)
-Bookcase and desk tops: walnut
-Sharp microwave oven drawer (love it!)
-GE fridge
-Shaw 30 inch apron sink
-Wolf range top
-Thermador double ovens
-Vent-a-hood hood
-Dal tile
-potfiller: Newport Brass
-hot/cold faucet Newport Brass
-Main faucet: Mico
-Door to garage: one panel painted with chalkboard! The kids love this and it's fun to put messages to guests, each other, holiday wishes, etc.
-Pull out baskets (love these...I keep bread in one and potatoes, onions, etc. in the other)
-Wine shelf--love it!
-Bar stools from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop (love these and they were so reasonable!)
-What would I do differently? More than 12 inch overhang on seating area of island (maybe 14-16 inch). And I might skip the bead board in the backs of the bookshelfs and glass cabs.

Happy kitchen designing to all! Thank you again!

We have honed Uba Tuba. I'm sorry I don't have pix at the moment but I think I will be posting finished kitchen pix next week and I will be sure to include a closeup. When we moved in, the counters were polished, and I really didn't like them--too cold looking and they never looked clean except right after I cleaned them and wiped them dry. My husband used to use a squeegee on the island! When we did our reno we honed them and I really like them now. You can see the green in the stone much more, and it is totally easy to take care of--I just wipe with a sponge now, no drying, and crumbs, fingerprints, etc. don't show. I do think it helps to have a stone with some color variation, although honed AB looks wonderful too.

Mamadadapaige has a honed green granite that looks like soapstone--check it out on the FKB.
