**warning, picture overload!**
Before (as a formal living room):
Getting Power to the Island:
I had an electrical outlet added to the ceiling since my house is built on slab. This was way cheaper than busting up concrete and I don't have to drape electrical cords to the wall outlets.
*Sorry about the cat being in the photos, she is one of these cats that you don't mess with when they are relaxing. Unless you want to lose a finger or two!
Cabinets: Home Depot
Canvas Baskets: Walmart
Knobs & Pulls: knobdepot.com (I ended up spray painting them because the color does not look like the photo and I had to order special screws to fit my drawers...a real pain!!) The round knobs are cheapies from Home Depot.
