make your own kitchen island with breakfast counter
brian writes, “i wanted a bar overhang, so i bought two of the 69″ lengths of the counter, cut them down a bit, joined them, and voila, a bar overhang on the back (with franklin chairs, the taller of the two models, which fit perfectly.)
also, i deliberately chose the oven unit so that i could put sliding trash and recycling bins in that space (plus it has the steel shelving which looks cooler than the particle board the other varde units have.)
much thanks, kelly.
