|Here's a photo of the old cabinets. See the cabinet facing the chair? The new one that was to replace it was the wrong size. So the company would have had to order a new one and custom build it to fit.|
|This is how the installer left things on Thursday afternoon. Wow! This looks really open!|
I thought if the kitchen was this open then maybe I could find a small table to use as an island. I don't really need one, but I like the idea of one and I was looking for an old piece to contrast a little with the brand new cabinets.
This is what I found.
|It's a reproduction, but in very nice shape and well built. No particle board! Hubby and I are thinking that we might seal the top with polyurethane because that would be more kitchen (water) friendly.|
|I found these cutting boards when I was waxing the piece. The guy I bought it from didn't know about them, either!|
|I love the rounded drawers!|
But it was only $89 + tax! And the owner of the store helped me load it in the truck.
I bought it at Mona Lisa's in American Fork, UT.
All it needed was 30 minutes of love and Howard's Feed-N-Wax!
I LOVE it! It's a little shorter than the cabinets, which isn't great for all the tall guys that live here. But I'm not extremely tall, and one day I hope to see grandkids with flour and cookie cutters making cookies at the island.
