Hello my Friends!
Last night I finished painting the kitchen island and even managed to install the hardware.
I thought I would share it with you!
I'm really pleased with how it turned out! The two cabinets on the left have pullouts. One is for the trashcan and the other is for a spice rack. This is why they have pulls instead of knobs. Just thought you might be wondering.
Since the island is the focal point of our new kitchen, it will be the only cabinet in this color.
The rest of the cabinets are going to be French Grey.
I am really getting excited...just one more week...
Or so I've been told!
This is what it looks like standing where our refrigerator armoire will be...
Looking into the dining room and soon to be completed living room!
I'm a tad bit nervous about the amount of grey I have used...but still love my inspiration pictures.

I love this deep charcoal color too! We are thinking about using this color on the refrigerator armoire and maybe...even the wall oven/pantry unit.

And this butler's pantry is gorgeous with the walnut countertop. I also love the furniture style pulls.
The counter slap we have reserved is soapstone...which I love!
But...I won't make the final decision until after the north wall cabinets are installed. I just don't want it to be too dark in the room.
Usually, I wouldn't put soapstone on a grey cabinet base. I would go with marble or wood...But with the zinc top and the reclaimed base of the island...
I just think we need to stay on the more rustic side.
What do you think?
If you were me would you stay on track with grey on grey or do a wood top?
Hmm... so much to think about!
Just not today...
I am off to paint the front door! It was recently installed and I need to get it done before outdoor painting will not be possible.
As you may remember, we have several areas of our home being worked on simultaneously !
This can make it hard for me to focus...sometimes!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
