As big as my kitchen is, it lacks the counter space I need to do some of my cooking and baking. At some point, I acquired several pieces of marble from a friend. So I took one to a stone yard and had it cut to size, then epoxied some brushed metal legs on it. I mounted it on a cleat under the windowsill, and now I have a little baking station.
Total cost: $140 for stone cuts and table legs
