The biggest noise is probably the street noise. Until Sunday morning and then the bells of a church (we live opposite the local church)

I reread the article to make sure I didn't miss anything about reusing the old kitchen cabinets because the layout and style are completely different in the before and afters. It just said that she did the painting and distressing herself so think the cabinets are new. Maybe the author could clarify that point.

Hi Allison. Thanks so much for this article. Count me in the love camp. I love love love my soapstone. Im actually stripping and staining my new (yes new) cabinets because i feel they detract from the beauty of the soapstone. The new stain will be a rusty reddish color.... Notice the chiseled edge which i also love!

I am still in the love camp even after reading this very honest and informative article. Here are my two slabs I purchased last year in anticipation of remodeling our kitchen. I fell in love with them early in our planning stages and had to have them They are not oiled or waxed yet. The fabricator wet them down so I could see how they will look when they are treated. Hopefully with any luck we look forward to a new kitchen sometime this fall.

The hidden room one was my favorite! But then again I have always wanted a home with hidden passageways and rooms.
