Wonderful!! You are just plumb full of wonderful ideas!

Love the new island and that you used a piece of tin ceiling tile for it. It is perfect!


I love it, Karla. It's just perfect in your new kitchen - which I love, too.♥♥♥

My best friend, Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor, told me she met you at Once Upon A Dream.


Love your new "old" kitchen island. The addition of the ceiling tile and the brackets are genius. I really like the decorative and collected element that they add.


wow, that is the most brilliantly creative thing ever. I love it, and it's so 'you'.



Karla this is a wonderful island! I now have it in my inspiration file for my someday awesome kitchen!


Hi Karla, the island is gorgeous. I love your whole kitchen redo its just beautiful. That's a great cuff bracelet too, very pretty.


Your island turned out great!


That is amazing! Just stunning! Your house is so very beautiful!



LOVE it!!! It turned out great!!!

Karla, your kitchen turned out so AMAZING!!!! I've been meaning to stop by and tell you but now, the island is like icing on the cake!!!! Just GORGEOUS! I love that you are cheap because I'm cheap too! I love making something wonderful from a cast-off. I'm always finding the prettiest clothes for Clara at the thrift ~ hug everybody in the craft group for me, ok? xxoo, Dawn


Karla, projects like this are one of the reasons I read your blog. It just delights me to see someone else who "gets it" and makes something out of nothing and it's so much better than anything new. Your island turned out perfect in every way!!


Karla you are just too much. I love how your mind works and wish I could be just as creative. Love the island!!

Enjoy your new kitchen!

Karla...what a gorgeous island for your pretty kitchen! The brackets as a paper towel holder/ marble support was a genius idea. Good thinking! Loved the expression on your little Dorkie's face. Priceless. Patty in Kansas

Heidi Meyer

I love your gorgeous kitchen island!! You are so smart and creative!! xxoo Heidi


Button has a good life! And I've loved following your kitchen exploits -- the island looks great!


That is really cool how you pulled together so many different elements to make your kitchen island. Your skills as a thrift shopper really paid off. And on wheels, too! Are you liking having it be mobile?

Hope you are enjoying your island in your new kitchen and craft day with old friends.
