My Other Kitchen Island

Well you all know that I can't leave anything in the same place for long and I don't think I have ever showed you my kitchen with the dresser island in it?? I love the dresser in here cause as you can see it is a small kitchen and I can store my cookware in the drawers so it works great for extra storage. I have it angled here so you can see it better, it's usually straight. I painted it a light pink and added the rose appliques, I want to get some towel bars to add to the side and back if it to hang some pretty dishtowels on, as a matter of fact I found some the other day at Marshall's but the registers went down and I couldn't buy them so I'll have to go back and get them. You can see I put up my red checked curtains for Summer, I thought they looked cute but I don't know how long they will last, LOL! I hope everyone has a great weekend (;

Kelly,
I love it! I like it better than the table too. Mostly because it is more functional with the drawers for storage. Also it looks taller and is easier to use. I wish than I had room for an island because I love this idea.

I have to move stuff around too, or I get bored. I love this. I've had my old sewing machine table as my kitchen island for a few months. But have been kind of itching to find something else. So I'm "shopping the house." Wish I had something that perfect.

Kelly that looks great. I recently found out that my grandmother used to rearrange the furniture once a week and so did my aunt so I get it honestly. See, I'm really not weird...LOL!!

I love the curtains because you have other touches of red in there and they look really really cute.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

I never thought of using a dresser as a kitchen island-- love the extra storage! I use a dresser as an entry table in my home. It's a great place to store shoes:)

Kelly, I love the dresser in the kitchen. I have a sideboard that I use as my island. The table/chairs I use upstairs in my craftroom as a sewing table/puzzles/craft projects. I love your home - no matter what you do it looks awesome.

Hugs,
Connie

Ann said...

What a beautiful island! I want one in my kitchen! A great idea!

Sharon~heartsongs said...

I love that dresser. It looks great there. I have an old buffet painted white in my kitchen for the same purpose. It gives me extra counter space and storage. Much cheaper than additional cabinets and I like the looks better too.

It looks great! I noticed you moved the other island to the living room was it? Your new one looks like it belongs perfectly in there. I'm the same way, things get moved around all the time. Change is good! :)
