Something Different in the Kitchen

A few years ago, my husband bought this piece from his son who was moving, and no longer wanted it.

We immediately placed it in the breakfast nook, without much thought, and that is where it has been ever since. I've been thinking about using it as an island for a while, but just never moved it. Y'all have heard me lament about not being able to redo my kitchen. With this piece moved to the kitchen, it works for a change to the room, and we will decide after a few days living with it there, whether or not we leave it.  It's an affordable way to make a slight change.

It blends well with the cabinets, and the white appliances, and I like that.

I tried it turned from side to side, but that narrowed the traffic pattern too much.

I had two wooden knobs from another piece of furniture that got new ones, so since I didn't want the shiny brass ones, I switched them out.  I also added a hook to the side for a towel.

It is centered between the sink, stove, and fridge, so it will make a convenient prep area.

I used the french drying rack to style the piece.  I replaced all the cups with white ones, and put a placemat underneath.

I think I'm going to like it here, but time will tell.  If not, it's not hard to move it from the room. I think it adds some interest to the boring cabinets!! Do y'all think I should paint it another color?  I might attach a towel bar to the side for towels, rather than the hook.
