I've been wanting to add some kind of cabinet/countertop on this part of the kitchen for couple months now, and I think this is probably the best solution for the space. It'll be a nice spot for the coffeemaker and toaster. got the free standing cabinet and open shelves from Ikea.
Tim helped cutting the countertop to shape, and adding the outlets. We will be patching up the drywall and fixing the paint today, and it'll probably take couple days to apply the butcher block oil
