As you may have spotted in my last post on the kitchen, we have been using our old table as an island unit, however we have a solution lined up for this – an old shop counter. I have mentioned my love for Retrouvius before and they do the reclaimed kitchen island ‘thing’ amazingly well. Check out the images below for a idea of what I am talking about.
I don’t want to do a big reveal yet, but here are a few sneak peaks of the unit we are planning to use.
We actually purchased the unit way back in February 2013 for another house we were hoping to buy – before we bought this house, we had an offer accepted on another house about a mile away. All was progressing well, till the bank refused to mortgage on the property and we had to pull out a week before exchange, leaving us with a kitchen island and a hefty solicitors bill! Ed is planning to strip the unit this week and hopefully it will be installed very soon.
