Updated Kitchen Island

Finally posting some pictures of the updated island. It's only been done for almost 6 months! Remember, I never said I was blogging for money or fame, just posting when I have time (and there's been precious little of it since moving to Texas!)

When looking at my kitchen, I would love to change the cabinets tone to have less orange to it, but that is just too big of a project to take on at this time. Painting them is an option, but not one I want to do now while my floors are tile.  I love a white kitchen, but only when the floors are wood, otherwise it feels too sterile to me. So that option needed to be put off until the floors are ready to be replaced (hopefully in about 5 years.)

So in the meantime, I chose to have my handy, dandy husband add some trim, beadboard and paint.
First, we added a bit more trim to the already beadboarded bar area:

Painted out:

Feet were added to the kickplate front for some furniture-like character:

The ends were both given trim and an x design:

Beadboard also added to the back side, trimmed and the outlet moved to be vertical:



The final touch was to add a pendant lantern fixture to our eat-in area. One can light at 10 feet didn't give nearly enough light at night. We used an adapter kit and swagged it to be centered over the banquette area:

So hard to get a good picture with all the light:

 I know these pictures stink, but my nice camera needed fixing. I'll try to retake them soon and replace them.

  6. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world had crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure for Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,Shingles, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,Bechet’s disease,Crohn’s disease,Cushing’s disease,Heart failure,Multiple Sclerosis,HypertensionFatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Autism,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicitySyndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans ProgresS sclerosis,Seizures,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases,,Copd,Glaucoma., Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease.Enlarged prostate,Osteoporosis.
