Enhancing a Kitchen Island

Recently, my neighborhood held its Annual Craft/Artisan Show…

I showcased and sold my Christmas Wreaths..


And my friend Kristen, of Sophia’s Decor showcased her gorgeous furniture transformations…

…..along with her beautiful jewelry, pillows, wreaths, table runners, and many other items.


She and her mom are the cutest…and so talented!!

They staged the front entrance with their beautiful items….

…..one of which I snagged quickly…it was marked sold before anyone else could get to it!!!



The cute table Kristen painted in ASCP Old White….

…..and used Miss Mustard Seed’s lovely wax..

I had the perfect place for that table…here’s the before…


And here is the after….


I really wanted a larger island when designing the kitchen…

…..however, the builder and the cabinet maker thought it was best that I have more room…

……….between the island and the other bank of cabinetry.

But, I still felt I could have “squeezed” another foot or so for a larger island.


So thanks Kristen…for providing me with the opportunity…

…..to enhance my kitchen island.


I love the contrast of the white and cherry finish…


It adds great surface space and storage….




I so love this beautiful table that Kristen re-furbished…

…..it is just the “extra something” that my kitchen island needed!!….


And soon there will be a “Kitchen Christmas Tree” on the table!
