Master Bath Countertops

We are currently trying to decide on the master bath countertops. We have narrowed it down to the following two, prada granite and breccia sarda marble.

Railings Completed

Dad and I finished welding the railings a couple of weeks ago. The last part was installing a short section that went down the three steps to the landing as well as the top rail on this last section. It took us almost a full day to figure this out, it took lots of cutting. I welded all of the last welds in the dark. I had to feel with my finger where to put the tip of the gun, but once I started welding I had plenty of light, spark…. spark. I ground all of the welds last weekend. I hit my knuckle with the grinder and had to go get two stitches. I cut down to the bone before I noticed. This is only my second injury in the last year, the first was from stepping on a nail. My foot took a while to heal.
