Another Little Project I've Been Working On...

My kitchen has lots of the same wood tone in it. The cabinets, the floors, the island. Even the walls are a beige. I had to do something to break up all that wood tone.
(Here's a before and after within a before and after. I installed under cabinet lights recently. Boy do I LOVE the extra light in the kitchen and on my workspace.)

The island seemed like the perfect spot to get to work.

Dull, boring, more of the same.

I decided I would install beadboard around the sides and back, trim it out, and paint the whole thing in chocolate brown. I also added some hardware to dress it up a bit.

I love how this gives the island more of a furniture look. And it's hard to tell from the pictures, but the brown goes beautifully with the countertops.

Holy cow Molly!I love this! What an amazing transformation. looks so custom and fancy. Great job!! So, are you going to do more cabinets like this now? I also love the lighting. So pretty at night I am sure when you don't have the overhead lighting on.
