Hello AT,

The windowsills in our apartment are an ugly slate green--the same material that covers the building's hallway floors. They look constantly dirty, the grouting is cracking and coming apart, and they were fronted with a clunky wood trim. Now that we've removed the wood, we're wondering what to do next...

How difficult will it be to pull up the slate, or would it be better to simply lay another material on top? What material can we use to replace it? We would prefer not to have any trim, but how can we finish the front given the state it's in?

Thanks! Alexis

Anyone?
