RE: Water rings on soapstone.....not anymore! (Follow-Up #4)

Well, Joshua spent Friday refinishing my counters. They are really beautiful. They came out stunning!!

Originally my counters were finished very uneven, with the edges being polished to a high sheen like granite and some pieces, really shiny others more matte. I had lots of scratching issues and had taken to putting placemats down before anyone put anything on the counters. Yes, a crazy way to live!

Now they are smooth and feel like a old worn stone, and they have a sheen, but not actually shiny. The finish makes the veining look better, but more talc-y. Very hard to explain but overall better, very beautiful and rich looking.

Last night we had people over and I had no scratching on my counters as I normally do - weird - great though!! I had been babying my counters and now I can really use them!

Joshua is doing my sister's counters this morning so I am off to her house. I will post pictures soon, and will do a post on Willow Decor, with more detailed explanations, but for now I just wanted to give you all an update!

Joshua really is a craftsman who loves soapstone and wants it to be done right. I am so grateful to Pluckymama for hooking us all up with the North East tour. I finally have the soapstone I dreamed about. I will let you know how it goes at my sister's house!!

So happy!! :)
