I wish I had more pictures to show you of an "updated" cottage.  The work being done is the "behind the scenes" work.  You know, lots of money going out with plumbing and electrical but not any "pretty" being seen?
I can show you new kitchen sink!  It will be here this week and I'm so excited!  We are finally turning the corner and over the next 2-4 weeks it will be nice to physically vision a few rooms coming together.
Considering my hubby has done 90% of the work himself, he has made great progress!  I will be painting like crazy over the next month and the claw bath tub should be here next week......yeah!

Here is a picture of a similar sink ~~~~~

    The one I purchased is a little bit smaller........Mine is from WHITEHAUS COUNTRY HAUS
AND I have to admit........I love doing dishes!  Of all the household chores, I enjoy cleaning my kitchen the most!

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
