Islands in the stream, that is what we are…
Well, now you’re going to have that song in your head all day. If you are a Dolly Parton fan and you actually know that song. I’m a Dolly Parton fan. She seems really cool. I wonder if she has a biography out? I just checked my library’s website, and guess what? She does. Only, it came out in 1994. That was 20 years ago! I’m going to need more than that, Dolly, c’mon.
Anyway, believe it or not, this post is actually about islands. I don’t know how we got off on a Dolly Parton tangent, but there are worse things that could happen. Here are a couple of island updates that are sure to please your eyeballs, and your island, if you have an ugly one that wants a makeover.
First, Shelly spruced up this sad island eyesore with paint and a granite top. Fooled ya! It’s actually fake granite. And by fake granite, I mean: paint! Plus a tiny sprinkling of glitter and a coat of epoxy. Check it out up close on her blog 100 Things 2 Do.
And I don’t know if this is officially the “World’s Ugliest Island,” but Stacy seemed to think so. It was certainly awkward and unattractive. But if the movies have taught us anything, it’s that the award and unattractive girl is secretly a total hottie underneath it all, cue makeover sequence.
See the whole process of this one, (because I honestly didn’t believe it was even the same island) (spoiler alert: it is!) on Stacy’s blog The Serene Swede.
