French country kitchen island

After thinking about it I decided to paint the shelves dark brown.  Hey if I didn't like it I could always repaint it.  Thanks for the comments that helped me to take the plunge.  So here it is.

It actually looked pretty good with nothing on it.

 I got the grouting done on the master bathroom floor this weekend.  I can't wait to get this bathroom done. I still need to demo the tile around the tub and the shower.
The toilet and trim are being done tonight.  I am excited about getting the toilet put in.  It has been over a week now and boy am I ready to get it installed. It's funny how you take small things for granted.  We have another bathroom on this floor put it is only a powder room so we have been taking showers in the basement bathroom.

Wishing everyone a great week.

  11. You sound so much like me... Always doing something. I love your shelves on your island. It makes me think I may need to rethink mine. We have two small stools, but it is almost too narrow. Shelves might just be the ticket... then I could decorate them! Thanks for sharing your lovely post at Home Sweet Garden Party! You are on of this weeks featured posts!
