Whine & Cheese
I called Lowe's & spoke with a most helpful guy. I told him about my thoughts on the countertop. He checked his sample of Flint Crystall, and in my best guess, I did in fact receive the right laminute. Which means that Formica has pretty much, IMO, misrepresented their pattern. But, I suppose I should have gone to Lowe's or HD to look at their tangeable samples... It's a real bummer that their picture vs. what the pattern actually is, is so different. The Flint Crystall that's represented at Formica is really, really nice. What I expected, was a larger pattern (¼"-½") and lots of contrast. Maybe I should fire off an email? Onward!
