Who's coming for dinner?

Remember our blank slate of a kitchen...


Well, it has been gaining a bit of a personality...


I finally got my island! It is big, beautiful and I love it!! The butcher block adds such warmth and character to the room. Once I get new barstools, I'll be able to seat four people at it.


Plus it has a huge cabinet base where I'll be able to hide pull-out garbage/recycling bins.


I kept my word on getting rid of that hideous faucet. After a bit of grunting and cursing, Andrew's father did a bang-up job of installing this beauty for us. Thanks Al!!


Here's a sneak peak into the living room. More on that later...

Lovely! The island is rocking the world of your kitchen. But, I must know where you got those white curtains!!!! Do tell, do tell!

Ahh, aren't those white curtains awesome?! They were a lucky find at World Market. Unfortunately, they don't appear to be online, but I found them in the store. Glad you like 'em!
