Red Island

Here is the kitchen island finished. I am so glad that the staining didn't work because I love the red paint. I painted chalkboard paint on the back--but that picture was too dark. I decoupaged scrapbook paper on the inside. It wrinkled quite a bit--I call that aging and antiquing Ü. In looking at the pictures, I am not sure about the towel/book rack on the side. I left it off-white but now wonder if I should have painted it white to match the top. I will wait a few weeks and see if sells as is. The final picture is the island in place at my booth. I was very tempted to keep this piece, but I think I need something less square and more rectangular.

Well I am off to watch the new princess movie with my daughter. Have a great night!
