Thrifty & Easy Faux Granite Countertops

July 1, 2015

I'm sure some of you have been wondering where I have been? Well.... Life has been a bit busy, super busy.

May 6, 2015

I've got to get you up to speed! I have done so much, but I haven't had the time to blog about it!! So, let's jump right to it!! The "change of plans" from my last post kinda scared me.  But the idea of having little adorable glass fronted cabinets above our existing cabinets had me giddy!
