Butcher Block Island


I’ve had this butcher block island for almost 30 years!  I love it and even when I didn’t have a place to use it I still kept it hanging around.  Several years ago I decided to use it in my basement (last house) for folding laundry, so I asked my friend Wayne to add the bottom shelf and put wheels on it for me.  It was a great height for folding clothes.  I don’t have a lot of counter space in my little farmhouse so I decided to put it in the kitchen.  It’s a bit tight but really comes in handy.  I’ve been wanting to paint it red since I put it in there but couldn’t find a good color.  I finally took a pillow cover I have from Ikea and had it matched at Home Depot.  I love it!! Perfect farmgirl red!  😉
