It's looking good!
I love how you did your island in a dark stain with the white cabinets. That looks great and something I am considering. It really looks good! Can't wait to see the big finish!
Gr8tday- thank you! I agonized over that but am so glad we went with it. It's actually a soft black paint called ebony. I think it helps ground the space and I will have black accents in the other part of the kitchen near the fireplace.
