Island Makeover

Our new apartment is very “Open Concept” if you will.  I love the way this will make entertaining easier.  And because I don’t have to pause the tv when I want a snack.

My only stipulation on the deal was that I could customize it.  I spent a good part of yesterday cutting and hemming fabric until our island went from this:
