Stranded on an island

My mom and I have been talking about kitchen gadgets and accessories a lot lately. One of our latest topics of discussion was extra counter space. I'm sure no matter how much you have, it never seems like enough. I have plenty, I suppose ... but an island sure would be lovely!

I found this while perusing bhg. Looks fancy, don't it? Well, it's just an old dresser! I mean, really ... why didn't I think of this? I love the extra storage the drawers offer and that you can add accessories, like the paper towel holder and hangers for utensils on the sides. I think this blue for an accent is absolutely wonderful, too. I can't say it enough ... this is such a good idea. Goodwill, here I come. Please produce the perfect dresser for me. I want an island. I have the perfect space for you.


  1. I love it! We have no space for an island... I think that is why I love baking at my mom's... she has a huge one!

    Good luck with the hunt!

  2. neat! I swear i would have never thought of that! Good luck at GW! No doubt you will come up withs omething.
    and yes, of course you are special..lurker AND follower!

  3. Go to our March or April post & look at what we use in our kitchen as an island ... my Grandmother's old kitchen baking table, put granite on the top! Beautiful! It has the old sugar & flower & utensils drawers ... treasure it.

    Popover for our TRIPLE GIVEAWAY if you haven't already. Have a lovely day. TTFN ~Marydon
