Installation Day! Kitchen Reno Part 5

The last video I shared was of Tempate Day, about 2 weeks ago. Following Template Day, we were sent an awesome powerpoint via email that mapped out our slab onto our counters so that we could see exactly how and where the veining would appear. I was actually unsure about one particularly prominent vein in the middle […]

My First LUFA FARMS Basket :)
