The more profiled your edge the thinner the slab will look. If you soften your edges with an "eased edge" (not pencil edge) the thickness of your slab will be maximized.

In my neck of the woods "eased" edge is just a softening of the sharp top and bottom edges. A "pencil" edge is a 1/4" radius or the thickness of a typical pencil. However, I ask for a minimum of 3/8" radius on the vertical edges of outside corners for safety concerns...small children hitting their heads, adults hitting their hips, etc. They will still feel the hit but it shouldn't cut them.

Seems I have two different corner radius... The first one from the island (same as the first pic I posted) is larger than on the other countertops. And yes, the bottom edge is the same as the top edge.

For what it's worth, in a renovation years ago, our kitchen designer disliked rounded edges like the bullnose because, he said, spilled liquids followed the curve around and under so they would roll down the cabinet (or whatever was below). With a squared-off lower edge, they would go straight to the floor instead.

We went contemporary anyway, with a bevel, so I can't say whether this is true!

Plaster walls are tricky to hang pictures. After you mark the spot put a small piece of masking tape over the mark where you will put the nail in. Hammer away...the tape will usually help the plaster not to chip. You can remove the tape after the nail is in the wall. Also, to measure where a picture will hang, take a measuring tape and hook it over the hanging wire of your piece. (you are looking at the back of your piece of art) Pull up on the wire with the tape measure like you are hanging it from the tape measure. Then measure from where you have pulled up to the top edge of the frame. (say 2") This is the mark you will lightly put on the wall. (this is where the top of your frame will hang)The difference to where you have attached the measure tape on the wire to the top of the frame is the distance you will then mark on the wall again and put the nail. I hope that I have been clear and that this is a help. Hold your next frame up, put a tiny mark at the tip of the frame, measure the distance on the back of the art piece to where the wire is pulled up to the top of the frame, mark on the wall again for nail placement. Oh, my, this sounds complicated....it isn't and there is probably a youtube on this!!

I just added a gallery wall in my dining room and it cost $0. It was all frames and art I had around the house but decided to put them all together in one place. I decided to not use photos at this time but I like that I can change my mind in the future. It's been a great inspiration for me to get back to painting and I love walking by and being reminded of how each piece came into my life!

@Chrysta Terrell - I would recommend one 10" pull centered.
@Suzanne Hessian - Burnished Brass, Antique Nickel (US15A), or Antique Copper are some unique options that look really good on white as well. Check them out here: http://www.waterstreetbrass.com/finishes
