{Home} Kitchen Island

About a month ago, I took the plunge and finally painted our kitchen island. It was something I had been wanting to do for a few years, but also something I continued to stall on. When my little man and husband took a guys trip to Florida for spring training last month, I knew it was now or never because two kids equals never getting anything done.

I chose a creamy white color with grey undertones {it was actually a color my sister shared with me and used in her new home}. The island took three coats, and I thought I was going to die. I strongly dislike painting. I love the look of a kitchen island that is not matchy matchy with the cabinets. Truth be told, I'd like to paint all my cabinets the color of the island, but I might be 60 before I would have time to tackle that ;-}

Last year, we replaced all the hardware in the kitchen. I mixed a simple knob and a more modern pull. My little kitchen is far from the kitchen of my dreams, but it's cozy and cute, and fits our little family for now :-}
