Kitchen design possibility of ridiculous proportion.

It took me no time at all to extrapolate an entire kitchen design from a single photo… a photo that is completely indistinct and has nothing to do with anything kitchen-related.

I am just that good.

I walked downstairs and silently handed the computer to Paul… Then I waited patiently, because the concept might not be immediately apparent if you are not blessed with my innate ability and imagination.

Also, the person who speaks first loses.

Planning our old-house kitchen remodel… I want to repurpose some unusual materials to make the design interesting.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Salvaged marble I have looked at for possible DIY kitchen countertops/altar/personal empire.

Most of the marble at the salvage yard that is large enough for kitchen counters or an island is reclaimed from bathroom walls… Public bathroom walls.

Is this repulsive? It is.
Could I somehow block that out of my mind and prepare food on it? Yes. I could.

This makes no sense to Paul, seeing as how I will not let people wear their shoes in our house.

A trip to the salvage yard – considering antique marble for our DIY kitchen remodel.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

I bet you thought I was kidding about DIY-mining my own marble countertops.

Paul was away for work early in spring. This doesn’t happen very often, but when it does I worry about two things:
1. previously-discussed proliferation of ax murderers outside the house.
2. that something really good will show up on Craigslist and my retrieval team will be unavailable.

Which is exactly what happened.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel – these antique marble slabs will make gorgeous countertops!

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
