This is long overdue. In October my island was FINALLY finished. Woo hoo! It was ready just in time for the holidays. I love, love, love it and use it all the time. Totally worth every penny to have to have the added counter space. We can now eat at our island and watch TV and it makes a great surface for food prep.
We also installed a Rev A Shelf, door mount trash bin in one of our cupboards. LOVE IT! No more black plastic trash bin laying outside the island.
My next mission is to upgrade the other counter tops to either granite or quartz later this year.
