Subtle but sweet

I've recently been on a "painting things white" kick...and the other night I decided that I was going to finally take the plunge and paint our cream-colored kitchen island to match the kitchen cabinets, trim, and doors.  Since the island was already cream, I was hoping that I wouldn't need 4 coats of paint to get it bright white. Luckily, this time it only took me 3 coats...hey - I'm happy. Here is the island before "rembrandt" got a hold of it (not a huge difference in color, but enough to make me cringe):

And here it is after:

...And just for fun, lets take a peek back at what the kitchen looked like when we first bought the house:

Check out the old countertops, floors and trim around the window before its 4 coats of white paint!  A few things on my to-do list:  Find inexpensive stools to fit under the kitchen island,  change out or just remove current window treatment, remove the dated cornice over the window, paint refrigerator black, or (sigh) white...
