Fine Homebuilding's "Creative Kitchen Islands Challenge" Official Rules
Let's face it, for most folks, a kitchen island is nothing more than a wooden box with a slab set atop it. For some reason, the kitchen island is more of an afterthought than a piece of furniture. Still, there are those willing to go the extra mile and create islands that stand out as beacons of artistic expression.
This month at Fine Homebuilding.com, we want to see your most creative kitchen islands in our online gallery. Get posting now for a chance to win an FHB prize package which includes the following items:
