Kitchen Island, Trunk Top and Loft Railings - Part XIII

I mentioned in my last blog post that we were planning on putting in a little island to extend our counter space and here is what I was talking about. It's an old Wringer/Washer tub and since the height of it was perfect counter height, we made a round wooden top for it. And didn't it come out great? It will really be a great addition to our kitchen and it looks right in place :) 

Then it was time to work on the loft railing. Earlier that day I saw a really cool stair railing done similar to this and I showed it to my husband. We both had a huge 'A-ha moment' and knew that it would be perfect for the cabin. And since we had all the supplies basically, it is what we did.




The view from the loft. I love the wooden top we made for the storage trunk. 

And this little owl came from one of my market neighbours. So sweet. 

Don't you just love the evening light in here? Everything just glows with warmth. So lovely.

  3. What a fabulous job you both have done. Love the overall ambiance of it all. Picked up some building tips just looking at your construction photos, they don't build stuff like this up our way in AU.

  4. It's hard to come by knowledgeable people for this subject, however, you seem like you know what you're talking about!
