I love my kitchen. I think it's coming from the apartment kitchen- which wasn't bad, but was a bit cramped- to a kitchen with not a lot more storage or counter space, but room to move. And, now, an added bonus! My aunt was de-cluttering, and, among other cool things I will surely mention in the future, I got this butcher block! It's square, and so is my kitchen, so I decided it would make a great "island". It's not exactly something you could pull bar stools up to or anything, but it gives me a place to set things (like a cookbook) while I'm working elsewhere in the kitchen. I'm a fan. It beats our home theater chairs- remember that story? The butcher block has a history too- it was given to my grandmother as a gift from my dad & aunt. I'm glad it's still getting use!
What do you think?
Note the dog butt in both pictures. He follows me around. Everywhere. Especially in the kitchen.
