|The island in the Pineapple House kitchen.|
Happy ending for the island: Kati and Andrew had the perfect spot for the island in their kitchen, so Ron and Bekah hauled it down South when they came to meet Baby Ellie! (Kati plans to paint the base another color to better blend in with their own things, but she's been a little busy the past few months. ~wink~)
|The island in its new home: Kati's kitchen.|
It is the table I have always wanted! I loved a hutch table the first time I ever saw one in Country Living magazine. When we were raising our family, we needed a bigger table and there was nowhere to put a smaller one (just because I liked it). But now we have the perfect space for it, and it suits our needs here much better than the island did.
- The three of us eat many of our meals here.
- There are comfortable places to sit for those who want to hang out with the cook. (We had a couple of bar stools for the island, but there was nowhere to put your legs.)
- At Pineapple House, the main function of the island was serving (mostly hors d'oeuvres), and I can easily serve from the table.
- It actually feels more spacious at this end of the kitchen.
