Heads up! Counters and walls are NOT even close to square or plumb.... measure twice!!! And plan your layout.

The comment about counters and walls not being square, is so true. We added a back-splash and really had to work to make it look even where the wall meets the counter. Turned out ok, but??????

We like it... matches the sinks... needs caulked, but too cold here now. I will use a metallic silver caulking for sure!
I think that will make a huge difference.

We learned something from our kitchen counter install:
They mixed a dollop of correct color wall paint with the caulk.
No ill affect on the caulk and it was a perfect match to the wall.
