My husband and I bought an old house 2 years ago and we have found so many neat things laying around. One of them being this island. Now I’m assuming it was used as a work table because it had grease stains all over it. That didn’t stop us from giving it a new use:)
It was a little short to be a kitchen island so my husband took it apart, added blocks under the top boards as you can see here:
Next we had to adjust boards on the bottom and top to make sure there was an over hang on the top and no over hang on the bottom shelf.
Once that was complete:
It was now time to sand, paint and stain. Here is the finished product:
We stained the top dark walnut and we added old nails (which we found in a chest in our home) to add character:
I love our island! It’s the perfect size for our kitchen and it’s exactly the look I envisioned.
Stay tuned for more home projects that my husband and I have been working on for the past couple years!
i love this i want to build one as a tool cart
What colour did you use to paint it and what stain colour is it?
