The Island for Sunday Scribblings: Vote

Kitchen island, that is.

We'd been thinking of getting one for awhile, now, so when we saw one for a decent price at Walmart, we bought it.

Then had to put it together.
It took us about an hour.  Not too bad.

But, when we got it into the kitchen,
we couldn't decide where to put it.
It almost didn't fit.

Gary liked it here:

But, I thought it looked better this way:

Neither of us liked it here:

Or this way:

He voted to put it here:

But it didn't look good from the other direction:

All evening he'd put it one place then I'd change it. 

Then he'd switch it back.

Then I'd move it again.

This morning he tried it like this:
And it felt right!

Phew!  We finally agreed!

It's OK to sit quietly out of use where you finally decided but with castors clearly it can be moved to suit it use even in one of the positions that got the thumbs down.

The last way is best, but I also like the middle of the room look. The great thing is you can move it anywhere.
