Design Sleuth: Instant Marble Countertop

June 7, 2012

Lately we’ve been noticing marble slabs in kitchens we admire, and Alexa and I are feeling the need to invest. Why? Apart from being a great surface for rolling out dough, the slabs provide spiffy coverage for less than glamorous counter tops.

We’ve just put in a call to our local SF salvage spot, Building REsources, in search of marble leftovers, but we’ve also discovered a great slab at Sur La Table. See details below.
