Repairing My Kitchen Floor

Several years before buying my Bedford farm, I purchased a house on Long Island.  By the garden, there had been a white marble stepping-stone path.  I removed the big, thick slabs and left them stacked, untouched, for several years.  Both the tops and bottoms of all the pavers were nicely aged, stained green in places by grass and brown from earth and wood, and almost looked like an old cathedral floor.  I had the top and bottom inch of each paver cut off, and the "dirty," worn sides were used as flooring stones.  There were just enough for the kitchen and I was thrilled with how it turned out.
