    Wow! That was great!! Does Paul own all of those tools? I thought he just did your bidding, but apparently that requires quite a bit of hardware!

    Jaw-droppingly well done! Loved the peek at Elvis in the video, too – personally thought her cameo appearance should have included the dulcet tones of her meow dubbed in – it could have been and Elvis&Elvis duet then:)

    Wowsers! That piano is just amazing with this drawers. Paul really knocked those out of the piano ball park. Can’t wait to see more…

    This whole project is GENIUS!!!! But BOTH of you have those genius skills….yours with the vision and Paul with his master builder skills! Wow….you two could build the next Palace of Versailles!

    Umm… I feel stunned. I think I must make up a new word to describe you and your husband. Fantabulous? No… .that’s not enough. I cannot love this idea more. I have been in since you said “piano = kitchen island”. Cannot wait to to see the end results – there has never been a better idea. 🙂

    Love your videos. Paul is pretty dreamy too 😉 You are heading to blogger stardom with this whole piano-as-an-island idea. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

    This is going to be better than any of your inspiration island photos.

    I’ve been reading the piano saga with great anticipation, knowing that the piano to kitchen island conversion would be wonderful. But this is truly beyond the scope of my imaginings. Well done!
    You are one creative thinker! And it seems you have the most perfect match in Paul, you are so lucky to have a husband with the ability to take your ideas and run with them. Looking forward to the next installment.

    Elvis supervising in the back ground was too cute.

    VEB, you are fulfilling your design destiny! 😀 This is one AMAZING project, from one amazing idea. I often “see” things in my head as other than what they were originally created to be; so many times others won’t “get it”. Then, you show them, and it’s like, OH MY GOSH, that’s awesome! How did you think of that? And I say, I don’t know how to not think like that. Haha
    Girlfriend, that piano-island is going to be totally fabulous. You are making your mark with this one! (And Paul is too!) What a blessing to have him to help bring your great ideas to life in your home. Congrats.

    Fabulous freaking job!!! After seeing that, I cannot come up with a word that is fabulous enough!

    Have you ever in your whole life been able to slide the flimsy back or bottom piece into the grooves, on say, an Ikea dresser, or Home Depot shelving unit for your play room? No, because they never just slide into the grooves. Yet, Paul makes a box, that is ostensibly perfectly square, and they just la la la, slides the bottom right in. I’m completely stunned. And awed. Maybe the other way around. Anyway, I had to watch the video like 6 times. You are a lucky duck, and you know it!

    In Darth Vader voice,”Impressive. Most impressive.” This video is genius in action. You and Paul are an amazing team, but we all recognize that none of this could come to pass without Elvis supervising. Seriously, your piano island will definitely be a completely functional showstopper. Team VEB rocks!

    What I want to know is WHEN is someone going to put the two of you on television? For Pete’s Sake, it would be one hundred times more entertaining and informative than 90% of what is on now!

    Love the video. Super envious of the wood shop. Well, and to be honest, envious of Paul’s skills.

    You should definitely be featured in a magazine for this project!

      Ann (and VEB), I totally agree that VEB and Paul should:
      Have a sit-com; be on the cover of a DIY/Design magazine; have their OWN DIY magazine; write for David Letterman….oh wait, too late for that.
