Craigslist / Repurposed / Kitchen island possibilities.

I have three competing design ideas for the kitchen. More or less the same layout/concept but depends on THE THING.

THE THING is defined as:
• thing that will simplify/infinitely complicate all decisions because I MUST have it.
• thing that will dictate layout/design because I MUST incorporate it.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel… I love the idea of using salvaged or repurposed materials in place of a traditional kitchen island.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Kitchen planning frustration — I’ll be William Wallace. Paul can be the Irish guy.

Paul and I spent Saturday discussing the kitchen… Or rather, we began a conversation about the kitchen which morphed into generalized irritation, which seamlessly merged into every fight we have ever had about anything house-related.

The kind of irritation that makes you want to lay down on the floor in surrender and say– I give up. You win. This entire conversation is all yours.

Knock. Yourself. Out.

But instead you tiredly suit up for combat because for some reason you must defend the honor of your irritation.

Planning our DIY kitchen remodel – let the relationship-stress begin.
