I'm throwing together a kitchen countertop with leftover tiles and a cast iron sink from Craigslist I got for $25. Ultimately I would like something fancy like slate but this will do for now.
Wow that was pretty easy! Sweet.
As a side note - the sink originally had two bowls, a wall mount faucet, and two soap dish things. The backsplash appears to have been terra cotta painted mortar(?) to match the red tiles behind the stove.
