See An Island, Make An Island

You may have seen this absolutely lovely photo floating around the internet as of late. Isn't is just scrumptious? As soon as I laid eyes on it I needed it. It was instantaneous I tell you. The color is yummy, the size is perfect, and the kitchen?? Well it looks a lot like the kitchen of yours truly.

So as you might have guessed, my super sweet and handy father-in-law took less than 48 hours to agree to, plan, and build an exact replica of this beauty of an island for our kitchen. Word on the street is that their island came from IKEA. Ours has been crafted with love with lumber from Lowe's. David and I were pretty good helpers and I'm happy to report that I took part in cutting, drilling, and sanding!

It's sitting in our kitchen waiting to be painted and stained as we speak {after this busy week ends}!!! I am truly such a lucky blessed girl to have such a helpful father-in-law. He's the best.

I think I might paint mine red, thanks for the great idea. Though not the top- don't want paint chips in me food!
