The heart of the home.....

My loving husband, bless his heart, let me use part of his Christmas bonus to buy these bar stools for the kitchen. If you remember from an older post, we found the island in my in-laws old shed. Now we are in the process of having a new top made that will extend out further for a breakfast bar. I will be sure to show an "after" photo when its finished. I know the stools seem a bit modern, but I love the mix of old and new. I dont know what we ever did before we had this island. I love to be in the kitchen cooking with family and friends gathered round talking!

I think your kitchen is just great.
I really like the black stools with the bright cushions.
My whole family revolves around our kitchen. When I moved the only thing I wanted was a bigger kitchen!
I also think your new island is AWESOME!!!
