A while back I showed you a picture of a little free standing island my contractor was building for my garbage. Yes, I did say garbage! I thought I would share with you the progress so far...and I need a little help!
Island without the finish and top.
The walnut top arrived yesterday from DeVos Woodworking in Texas. We found them online doing a google search for wood tops. Boy did we get lucky...it's gorgeous!
The side panels, drawer and door were removed for transporting to the finisher.
The island is going to go right under the pot rack! No more tall people hitting their heads I promise. My oldest son likes the pots there because when he comes over he likes to play tunes on them! One time he came over and almost made soup in one of them. I said HEY I don't use those! LOL I drive my family CRAZY I know! :)
Okay now back to business here! My cabinets are really really white. So my dilemma is what to do with the finish on the island. I can only come up with three options. Option #1 is to finish it white to match my cabinets, option #2 is to finish it white and put a antique glaze on it to bring out the pretty details and option #3 is do it white like my cabinets and live with it for a while and maybe glaze it later. Option #3 will probably cost me more money though. I looked at a sample Steve had that was a creamy white with a glaze on it. I loved the combination with the dark top but I think it competes with my very white cabinets. I also had a sage green sample but it did nothing for the dark walnut top. The cabinets being so white are a real pain!
This is where you come in. Since becoming a blogger in April I have seen some beautiful furniture makeovers you talented ladies have done. So I thought who better to ask for help! I am open to suggestions! Maybe I should have just bought a trash compactor! :)
Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to read this.
Have a great day!
