KITCHEN ISLAND RE-PURPOSING IDEAS

I've been brainstorming these last few weeks on creating an island in my cottage that is somewhat unique and on the industrial side.  I'm sure you are wondering, what does this picture from Over the Moon Vintage Market have to do with that?
Well............if you look very close, there is a vintage green locker in the pic.  A three over three with the most fantastic green chippy paint.  It's approx.  36" wide and  30" deep.  Perfect for the space I am thinking about in the cottage.  But I have to tell you.....I am stepping out of my comfort zone here with this.  I do like it so...........I bought it!!!
Hubby loves the color and the idea.  He is going to put a wood top on it and industrial rollers on the bottom to raise it up.


Call me CRAZY, but I'm going for it!!  Hey, the worst thing is, if I don't like it......I'll do something else with it!
I also bought a CHANDY to go above it....(sorry, no pic).  It will be a while before we get to this point in the decorating area but my mind is going non-stop!
I'm going for a Romantic-Rustic look in the cottage.......I may love it or it could evolve into something else.
I thought you would enjoy some pics of  "things" people have created/used for an island that are VERY UNIQUE and different~~~~~Enjoy!



















Some very different, unique or extreme examples here.  I am really thinking outside the box with this but I am willing to try it..............Have a wonderful and blessed week~~~~~Roxie

~~~~~INSPIRATION IN DECORATING~~~~~

I went to the cottage yesterday to do some work.  Ken went a couple of hours before me.  At the last minute, I grabbed an antique frame hanging in my hall bathroom.  I thought, I need a little "inspiration" at the cottage before I start to work.  That's whats all around us......mess, dirt, tools, etc.
I came in the cottage, cleared off the mantle and set the antique frame down.  Then I turned the sconces on and stepped back and visualized~~~~yes, call me crazy.....but I needed to "decorate".
Ken says what are you doing?  My response.....I need to be "inspired" before I start working!  He just looks at me with a half grin......

Today is a cold, rainy, miserable day.  Ken left the house to go to the cottage at 8 am.  Not me........I came a few hours later.  Here is what I saw when I walked in the door........



He told me "I needed to be inspired before I started working".  Who would know?  I had to laugh!!  What you are seeing is my hubbys creativity.....he does think a little different, but always makes me smile with his sense of humor!
Just in case you can't see what it is............................(sorry for the dark pics, overcast today)


                          Besides me, this is a love of his life~~~~~He has such good taste!!

                                         Blessings and a wonderful week~~~Roxie

ARTICLES DE PARIS

I want you to meet my new, old door.  I have been looking for an old door with character to be installed on the larger of the two bathrooms.
About a month ago, I came across an old door at an Antique Mall and LOVED it!  It was the natural wood with a great patina, all hardware including hinges, and glass in the door about this size with a stencil/painted bird motif (perfect for a cabin w/nature) but still some femininity.  I passed on it..........thought more about it and went back to get it and guess what?  Yep, it was gone!   REGRET.
So .............yesterday I came across this door at a local Antique Mall.  I love it!  The color is not of my choice (though it is old paint) and I haven't decided to paint it  or sand it down.  I'd prefer to use some natural wood tones with white walls and lean to sanding to a wood patina.
I have a choice where to use this door......into the larger bathroom or on a walk-in closet hubby is building.  The french wordage would be perfect for a closet door but the door wouldn't be seen as much.  I plan on putting white lace behind the glass for privacy.  That really makes the door/french words pop!
