The blah-blah life of a stay at home mom and wife.
Big improvement - and almost done. Not so sure about the colour of the island however.
I love the island colour and would have done the whole kitchen in that colour if my better half had been agreeable to it. :)
Ah. Its that funky creative style - Valerie has it also. It makes me think of the Caribbean so I googled "colorful caribbean kitchen" for 'images' and two kitchen islands match yours on the first page :)
I am going with just plain white tile on the backsplash though because while I love the blue, I might get sick of it in a few years and much easier and cheaper to paint the island than to replace the tile. Here is a link to what I really wanted (vs what we have): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/239605642645372953/ :)
Looking at that link and I now get it.
