BoosBlock for Our Kitchen Island

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!

I love your little butcher block table. My DD Alex has it in her kitchen and I love it, but we have a rustic table we love too.
Your kitchen looks so warm and cozy Chris. You'll get used to smaller spaces, we did and now I don't want my old huge house and gardens...lol
Hugs to Rea and all the cuties. Enjoy the 4th. of July weekend.

Hi Christine! Oh, I love your new block island and it is perfect for your lovely kitchen. I love Boos products. I have a cutting board about 3" deep or so and have had it for 20 years! Just love it. Your home here is looking so pretty. No surprise as you are the decorator deluxe!
Happy 4th,
Shelia ;)

Aren't you glad that John asked if you wanted to go into HG! It looks great in your kitchen and it will be great for prepping veggies and fruits.
Have a nice 4th!

I might have the incentive to cook more if my kitchen was that pretty. :-)
Have an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend.

Pat Freymuth said...

It is a perfect island for your kitchen Christine. I don't get in as many visits to HG as I used to. I need to do something about that. I live closer now and don't get there as often. What's wrong with that picture!!LOL

I love your kitchen and the island looks fabulous. You chose a fabulous colour.

Best wishes,
