Our Florida kitchen is not as big as our kitchen in Natchez, MS, but it is functional. I love how it has a lot of storage but I miss our kitchen island in Natchez. So, when John and I spotted a butcher block table at Homegoods about 2 months ago, we both fell in love with it. But, the price was more than what we were willing to pay.
Our kitchen before the table.
The other day while headed for the Farmer's Market, which is next door to HG, John asked if I wanted to go to HG first. But of course after all, it is my favorite store. And as usual, I went and checked on the butcher block table and lo and behold! They have marked it down $200. We could not resist any longer so we bought and brought it home. It was so heavy that John and I could not even move it but the employees helped us load it in the car and my son in law unloaded it for us.
And there it is! I think the size is perfect to serve as a kitchen island.
I love how thick the block is.
Still have enough room to walk around it.
I ordered Boos block miracle oil and cream from Amazon but they have not arrived yet. And they did not cost me anything since I had enough rewards to pay for them.
The house is coming together. We still have some furniture in Natchez that need to be moved but we are in no hurry since we have not sold the house yet and we have enough here to function well. See the bookcase that used to sit in the hallway in Natchez? It fits perfectly in the big wall in the family room. I love its ladder cause I can easily go up and move things around. I even store oversized serving top and can easily get them when I need them.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like the minor changes. I love my butcher block table/kitchen island.
Thank you to all the hostesses or these fun parties!
