Trust me its just right , and its in just the right location , it is a great addition to this kitchen .
Lisa has done all the work on this island ,a tiny bit of help from me, this is a lot of work , don't let me miss lead you , it is a lot of detail work , lots of little touches to take a basic box and make it into a real thing of beauty.
Open shelving for pretty cook books and display pieces.
The added storage and organization , what a bonus. Lovely simple brackets to support the over hang.
A gorgeous slab of oak butcher block.
Beautiful applied mouldings on each end and stool area. The light needs to be moved over just slightly , its sad that is not a simple task.
The toughest part was trying to decide on a paint finish , to glaze or not to glaze, painted cabinets need occasional touch ups , I call them "touch up Tuesdays" now a all over glaze finish touch up would mean starting over , you can not touch up a glaze rubbed finish , so Lisa decided to keep the overall creamy white color and hi light the profile with just a touch of glaze , what a big job for Lisa , but she has done an amazing job on this island , I can't wait to show you it all completed , the doors and hardware installed , the drapes hung on the doors behind , it is going to look fabulous , and it will function so much better than a table with 4 chairs , this island provides , eating space , two new spacious cabinets for storage , three open shelves , and a large work surface , what a wonderful addition to this kitchen.
