From its raw state, we designed and created a one-of-a-kind powder room vanity *All known materials listed at bottom of post* We first shared about CEO and Principal Designer/Craftsman Jason Hoffman's Black Walnut adventure here. Today, we're sharing the finished product of this bathroom remodel in Needham, MA. As a refresher.... Below is a quick render of the design approved by our client.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT - Westwood Addition & Whole House Renovation Perhaps one of the most exciting things about moving your family to a new home, is the opportunity to personalize it to your own taste.
