Island Dreaming

I've been dreaming of an island.

No, not this island.
A kitchen island.

I love these from Ballard Designs

Unfortunately, I don't have a grand to spend on an island.

Not even close.
Hello, it's Christmas people.
And I just bought a house.
And Daddy doesn't have a job.
And spending $1,000 on an island is stoopid.

Stop laughing.
This is what we bought.
It was $40.00 on Craigslist.
I really don't need extra storage, so a table is perfect.
I have something like 45 cabinets and drawers.
Some are empty.
And I needed something large.

We're going to raise the legs.
And strip and stain the top.
And paint the rest of it. 
Probably green.
Like the one below.
I was inspired by Erin's island from It's a Wannabe Decorator's Life.
Her house is seriously cute.
Stay tuned to see my island go from not so cute to adorable!
