We had originally thought we would just re-use the counter top that was in the kitchen, piecing it where needed. However, we realized that piecing it would cut down on the amount of cupboard space under the counter because we would need more supports to hold all the ends. We decided that we would shop around and see what we could find. We found some solid black counter top at Discount Home Improvement so we bought it. It counterbalances the white of the walls and cupboards beautifully (my kitchen has a black & white cow theme). We also got a new faucet, since we didn't really like the style that was there, and it leaked.
