Kitchen Island Makeover
A few months ago I was walking through a tag sale with my husband when I spotted this beauty of a kitchen island. Sure it was in rough shape, but all I could see was a fresh coat of crisp white paint and a rich dark stain on the top. I knew it would require some elbow grease, but wow would it be beautiful…
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that how long it sat in our garage untouched. But we finally got a string of nice days where I could open the door to start sanding. As soon as I saw a hint of bare wood, I was on a mission.
In the end, I realized two things:
1) I probably could have built the thing from scratch for the same amount I spent on the island + materials (sandpaper, paint, stain, hardware) to redo it. It was actually a pretty simple build and likely would have taken less time. Womp womp. What’s that saying? Hindsight is what?
2) Either way, the potential was real…the end result is EXACTLY what I imagined!
Which is all to say, in the name of saving you some sandpaper, I put together the simple building plans to build you own. Click the link below to check it out!!
