This weekend we took out the bar and made our new farmhouse island! You can see our temporary patch work on the floor where the bar was :)
It has gone from being a closed in kitchen because of the bar separating the dinning room to now being one big room. I am loving the new open kitchen and dinning room.
The new island was not hard to build at all. Bill and I had it mostly built on Friday night. Saturday morning Bill and his dad added a brace in the center and the pocket holes to screw the top on.
In the picture below you can see that Bill's dad removed my old tile backsplash and Bill has removed my cabinet doors to get ready to paint my existing cabinets white. Oh and our temporary flooring countertop lol. We are going to do this side of the cabinets with granite but that phase is a little bit away yet.
Where we cut the old bar off in our existing run of cabinets we added a new 3 drawer cabinet. Hardware still needs installed but I already have the drawers full! I am so excited I have gone from 2 existing drawers in the kitchen to now having 9 drawers!!!
stay tuned more to come........
