My Little Island Is Almost Done!


Before I show you my island Sophie okay really her mommy wanted to show you her new Halloween bows.  
I had to chase her around the whole house to get these pictures!  These were the only two that weren't blurry.  She moves pretty fast for an old girl!  

Okay so now for the progress on little island jr.  The finisher delivered it yesterday afternoon which of course was really exciting!  Remember when I asked your opinions on what type of finish I should do?  Most of you said white.  Well I agreed so white it is!  If I ever decided I was bored with it I can always have it glazed.  
Isn't it great so far?  Steve will be over in a little while to put the panels on and install the drawer.  I just ran into one little problem though. I have a knob for the drawer but no handle yet for the pullout for the garbage.  All my cabinet hardware came from Restoration Hardware.  Some of you might have seen on CNN last week a very disturbed 23 yr. old guy set fire to the Roseville Galleria Mall.  Which is so tragic for all the people it employs to be out of work at this time.  But guess where Restoration Hardware is?  Yep, at the Roseville Galleria!  The mall is closed of course therefore I won't be going there to buy a handle.  In the mean time I can stand back and admire it and eventually it will have trash in it! LOL
The panels waiting to be installed.

  1. Hi Denise :) Your island is looking good so far; it's just awful about that Mall being set on fire. Why do people do such things. We had someone in Grand Rapids, MI setting fires to garages in one particular neighborhood, but thank goodness the Arsonist was finally caught! Try keeping an eye out on Ebay and Etsy for someone selling handles like the ones you have in your kitchen...I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that will find a handle soon :) Miss Sophie is quite stylish in her Halloween bows :) What a cutie-pie!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
