What to Do With Stone or Granite Countertop Remnants

Often when you’re finished with a kitchen or bath project, you’re left with remnants. Granite is just too pretty to let go to waste, which is why we’ve curated a few creative ways to repurpose that gorgeous stone. Here are seven ingenious ways to use your stone or granite countertop remnants:

1| Cutting board

Larger pieces can be turned into sleek, long-lasting cutting boards, cheese platters, and pastry trays just by adding hardware.

4| Solid granite table top

Have a larger piece of granite? Affix it to hairpin legs for a mid-century modern side table that’ll go in any room.

5| Water features

You’ll need a few extra items (try this general how-to guide from Instructables!) for this project, but round or even irregular granite remnants can be stacked to create a charming water fountain for your garden or patio.

6| Wall hooks

This clever idea comes from Apartment Therapy. We can see these DIY hooks holding keys, measuring spoons, necklaces… you name it.

7| Patio Slab

Art of Gardening took granite scraps from several projects and laid them out in a gorgeous mosaic that acts as a patio slab. Gorgeous!
