repainting the island

With a fair amount of free time on my hands,
but very limited access to supply,
in other words Quarantine,
I have been working on a couple home projects,
like painting the kitchen island!


Isn't just a lovely blue?!
It is the same blue (in the midnight hour by Benjamin Moore)
that I used on the library (leftover paints are the best!)


And since the kitchen is on the opposite to this wall,
I thought it would be a great accent!

I was also inspired by Cristina of Remodelando La Casa

My island already underwent a lot of transformations
over the years, from plain stained plywood, to "station wagon"


to white to finally blue

As I previously mentioned I had already repainted the kitchen blue,
palladian blue by Benjamin Moore


My sister thinks I am going through my Blue period!
It has always been one of my favorite colors...


the kitchen is a little bit messy, we do live here and it is quarantine time,
so not too bad.

One thing I would like to update is the countertop of the island,
I thought about it during the ORC baking corner (more than 3 years ago!)
I would like a lighter countertop and reuse the black granite
for the baking corner that still has its temporary butcher block...
but that will have to wait longer!

In the meantime,
here is a picture of my first Lily of the Valley:

(and Bosco)

After years of tries and failures, they are in bloom,
last year, there were only leaves....

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
