I've been on an eternal quest for an island for the center of our kitchen for over 2 years.
I think I finally found "The One"
Please overlook the background. We're in the middle of trying to pick the perfect gray paint color for middle daughter's kitchen.
The back looks just like the front and the doors open from both sides. yay! I'm thinking storage for all the counter-top appliances.
Here's our kitchen and the island we have now. No windows in the kitchen so getting pictures is a problem. sorry.
The kitchen's cabinets are kind of busy, so the pots hanging in the middle of the kitchen just add to the messy look. It doesn't help that I love clutter!
The only picture I have of the kitchen without an island is from Christmas. It just seems like there should be an island in the middle doesn't it?
Wild Bill was relieved to hear the new island is a reproduction and not an old relic dug out of a pile in a dusty shop!
He's not with me on this trip to Illinois, and I think he's worried about what I might drag home.
He probably has a right to worry since I bought the island at the Kane County Flea Market last weekend. So many old things, so little time!
My daughter lives right near it, but she had never heard of the Kane County Flea Market. Luckily I had read about it on Rosemary's blog:
Rosemary often talks about selling at the Kane County Flea Market, but we didn't see her there.
Maybe we'll have to go back again this Saturday?
