This is my first instructable. Hopefully it will help you save a couple of bucks.

We have been remodeling our bathroom and needed a new sink and counter top. We really wanted a granite top but just didn't have the money to spend $300+ to get one. So this was our solution.

Step 1: Secure a table

The first thing we did was to search the local online ads for a granite table. We found one with a broken leg for $50. I thought this is a real bargain so I called to find out more about it and the guy really wanted it gone and said that If I came and got it I could have it for $20. Great start!
Sounds like a good find.
Never thought about getting used granite. We wanted a granite look in our kitchen, but we were already way over budget. We ended up with white and black tile counter tops all except for one area. We found a remnant piece if black granite that could be cut down to 2x4 feet to fit one area. We call it &quot;accent.&quot; We also found a remnant piece of red granite which we used as a new fireplace surround and mantle. These pieces were in the trash bin, so keep your eyes open for good deals.
Good job. My kind of hack!
Very nice!
That looks great, definitely an improvement!
Looking nice for $20 worth of granite!
