DIY Kitchen Island

Build Basic DIY Kitchen Island by Nevin - Reader Project

Can you guys believe this awesome DIY Kitchen Island build by Nevin B. in Ontario?!? Finding his email in my inbox complete with his sweet kitty made my day!  He used our DIY Kitchen Island plans to complete the build, saying;


“Plans were great and went along with my initial ideas.  Painting furniture was new for me.  When sanding between coats make sure to lightly hand sand.  Final coat should be long brush strokes to eliminate lines and very lightly.  Foam brush does the best job and gives the best finish.”


. Great advice, Nevin! Scroll down to see more amazing photos of his build, and to get my plans for this project here on Build Basic.
