It was a should I or shouldn't I kinda morning yesterday until late afternoon I said to myself "just do it". The reason I wanted to paint it was that the top work surface was blotchy, dirty looking and did not clean well at all. Besides I wanted to brighten up the kitchen a bit more.
This was a piece my husband had retrieved out of an abandoned house that was due to be demolished. It was part of a built in cupboard. Ah, got to love those old homes. We have a couple of beautiful cupboards that I can't wait to show and tell that also came from a cottage home that was demolished by DNR. They will be going into the kitchen of the mill.
So this island painted up nicely. I used a pure white semi gloss paint so the surface would be washable and it really brightened up the kitchen. No regrets from this gal!
I decided to add a new vignette to my island. I had brought out a few jadite bowls (crazy for Jadite), some ironstone and a few smaller elements to add to it and oh, I found this cute old green stool when hubby and I went out antiquing yesterday. I had also made a haul on some cool ironstone dishes for a great price!
