Kitchen Island - Another open project
Besides the guest bathroom remodel we have in progress, we are also finishing the kitchen by installing an island. We ordered pre-fab KraftMaid cabinets and my father is helping us finish the sides and back this weekend. I have gone back and forth on if the island should be white with soapstone counter or black with the same CaesarStone counter as the rest of the kitchen. I have decided on black with the same CaesarStone thanks to the photos I found below (sorry I don't remember where I found these). I am also using Absolutely Beautiful Things' island as reference for how to finish the sides.
I also have two great bar stools from West Elm that we are going to use. They are currently white, but thanks to Decorno's recent post asking about recommendations on sites to order fabric I have some great new resources to track down slipcover fabrics.
After this weekend I should have some more photos of the progress to share. Plus I also have some additional kitchen projects to share when I take the time to download photos from my camera.
