Well this spring I shared my kitchen makeover with you all, then life got a little crazy so I never got to zero in on some of the details. Today I want to share a little bit more about my center island.
One of the priorities with this kitchen remodel was to make our kitchen island our families main eating area. It originally sat 4 so we needed to extend it to accommodate our party of 5. I could have chose to just extend the concrete top we were doing over the main area, but I really wanted to do something a little different. I considered using marble and a few other materials, but then I came across a gentlemen by the name of Chuck Paulson who had done 2 amazing barn wood mantels at a clients of mine. They had found him on Craigslist and highly recommended him. Here are some pictures of the mantel he did for them.
As you can see, Chuck does an amazing job preserving the original character of the wood!
I gave him a call and explained what I was envisioning and what he built exceeded our expectations! He even suggested adding some rustic bolts on the end to give it a little more character and we love how they turned out!
The barn wood extension is supported by some beautiful brackets we found on ebay. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!! Please visit Chuck’s website to learn more about his work.

Have a great day everyone!!
