As a part of our recent kitchen remodel, we removed our existing white laminate cabinets and relocated them to our garage.

With college move-in day in full swing, we’re getting nostalgic about our own days in college. Decorating our dorm rooms, meeting our roommates, sitting down in that lecture hall.
