  • Cabinets: cherry stained cabinets
  • Countertop: Tan Brown granite
  • Backsplash: DIY Tumbled copper slate from Dal-Tile. 6 x 6 with a 3" border made up of 1 x 1 mosaics. The grout is "tobacco" by Custom. I painted wood outlet covers with craft paint to match the tile. I used antique copper metallic as a base and an ivy green metallic over top, with a bit of burnt umber.
  • sink: black Moenstone
The tile looks shinier in the pics than it does in real life. It does have a lot of natural shimmer to it though. The sealer did enhance the color.
