On a happier note, here's my new island!
While I'm waiting for the flooring guys and hopefully answers about my shoe molding. Here's my new island that was installed yesterday.
I bought this slab a year ago last February so it's been a long wait. I choose my entire kitchen from memory and a couple of photos of the slab so you can imagine how nervous I was to see it come in as the last element of a basically (except for the floor) finished kitchen.
I'm happy to report that I love it and think it's the perfect compliment to pull my other elements together. I'm happy. My friend came in and announced that she wanted to live inside of the fabulous piece of the rock that looks like abalone.
