I have been wanting to a butcher block top on the island for a while now. We found one at IKEA for less than $100...but shipping cost $400! I had kind of put the idea on the backburner since I figured it would be a while before we made a trip to Charlotte or Atlanta.
Christopher asked our dearest friends, Ashley and Alex, to pick it up while they were in Charlotte. I was TOTALLY surprised by this sweet Christmas gift.
