A funny thing happened the other day. I took my mom to a showroom to buy a sofa and we walked out with a new piece for our kitchen instead. Well, this certainly isn't a sofa! My dad was pretty surprised :)
We've been wanting some extra counter space and an area to place appetizers when we host family parties and get togethers. This butcher block island definitely fits the bill! It will sit on this wall off the breakfast nook and then we can pull it over to the kitchen if we need more prep area, etc. It is doing wonders for the space. It's funny how you can leave a store with something so perfect for a space in your home, when you didn't even know needed anything there!
The red framed picture will be changing soon. I have these gorgeous herb prints coming in the mail and can't wait to frame them and get them in place. Operation update my parents house is moving right along :) And now for that sofa we still need...
What do you think?
Enjoy your day! I'm flying to Michigan today to visit my BFF. Hooray! Later this week I'll be showing you how to create the bouquet above, by only using grocery store blooms.
PS. You can also catch me over at Attempts at Domestication sharing some travel tips for the wonderful city of Seattle!
