For a few months I've been debating what type of bar surface I wanted to use. I've gone to home builders shows, all the stores, searched the internet and it always ended that I HAD to have granite. I've searched a ton of threads, checked out what other people have done - and again decided that I want granite.
So wouldn't you know, I randomly ended up at Home Depot (ok, so maybe not much randomness to it
). Nevertheless, I was looking at countertops - again - and asked the sales person if they had any granite tile. I was directed to the flooring department where, wouldn't you know, they had the exact Absolute Black granite tile that I'm in love with on clearance for $5/sq. ft!
I couldn't turn it down, so I bought 15 boxes and am going to do granite for my back bar, front bar, lower front bar and the breakfast bar on the half wall partitioning my theater/bar room.
Needless to say, I was pretty excited.
Anyone have any neat ideas or suggestions for install? I found something pretty close to what I'm wanting to do in "BritInVA"'s thread here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...te#post9565702
Since the theater stage will be an all oak finish, I"m going to stay with the same theme for the bar. Black granite with oak would accents... I think it looks pretty sharp!
