Confession about my Island

I have a confession to make to you.  I don't like my island.  I posted about my kitchen redos the other day, and even as I was uploading pictures of my island, I knew I didn't like it completely, but I thought it might grow on me.  Alas, I can kid myself no longer.

It, indeed, has not grown on me.  Just today I put a stain wash over it to distress it a little to see if I would like it more.  I like it a little more, but I'm still not happy with it.  I can even hear your thoughts as you look at the picture.  The overwhelming majority of you are saying, "Meh."

Oh well.  I'll have to live with it for a while, but I do have a feeling I'll come up with something else soon.

  1. I do like it better with the wash. In the close-up pic, it's hard to see how it goes with the rest of the kitchen!

  2. The rainbow and magnets looks like a sad face!

    1. LOL, I didn't notice that. That must be a subconscious thing that I added to the pic.

  3. I do like it better with the wash and I agree it was hard to see how it went with the rest of the kitchen. I was impressed with how you spiced up the island with the legs and put an area for the kids. Given that you are wanting to do a full remodel on the kitchen in the near future I like how you did this with minimal costs. You are so good at decorating I struggle with seeing in my head what the end result will be. Thank goodness for Pinterest and Bloggers who are fantastic at decorating!
