Daveney. Kitchen Islands. May 07th , 2017.
We are finally finished with our kitchen. Okay, that’s not true, nothing ever seems to be truly finished……..we still need to switch out some outlets, paint the pantry door/trim, touch up ceiling pant, fill in a few cracks, blah, blah, blah. It’s always the little things that get pushed to the back of the list, right. Ha. So, I’ll be lucky if those darn things get done before 2015 rolls around. ;) But, the kitchen is done enough to share. And the island is completely done…….so I had to quickly share these columns that I absolutely LOVE and am so glad we added to the counter overhang.
Do you have a counter overhang in your kitchen, where you tuck under a few stools? Or keep clear for cabinet access? Some counter overhangs already have support but if they’re the hidden kind, these could be added as a piece of visual beauty. Because, ahhhhhh, I kind of adore these curvy little swanky columns. They are the perfect design feature for all the straight lines going on in my kitchen.

Okay, hold on one second……DON’T YOU DARE get nervous about this. Because this is a SUPER simple addition to make. Promise. (And pretty darn inexpensive too.)

Even if you’re not in the market to re-vamp your WHOLE kitchen, maybe you can just perk up that little ol’ island (or overhang)………and turn it into your kitchen’s focal point. You could paint your island a different color from the rest of the kitchen, add some new columns to the corners of your overhang……and ahhhhh, a whole new look! You know that a different colored island is totally on trend right now, right? (Steve told me the other day, “hey, why didn’t we think to paint the island another color?” Ummmm, too late, we’re not changing ONE. SINGLE. THING. …….for now! ;) )

I can’t even tell you how happy I am that this kitchen is done. There was a bit of drama (including installing 2 different brands of cabinets and receiving 5 or 6 broken sinks [I lost count]……oh gee, I’ll share that craziness down below), a few setbacks, and many weeks eating take-out and microwaved meals. Yuck….that got so old. But that’s just what you do when renovations are going on. And yes, I’m going to say the ol’, “it was totally worth it!” adage. Because it truly was!
