Kitchen Island Made From an Old Door....

I have always wanted to attempt to make a kitchen island and I finally found the perfect one to make. From an inspirational picture found on PINTEREST to a kitchen island I'll love forever, because it was made by my own two hands.

To see The step by step instructions I used to make this ...Please visit My BLOG PAGE..


I noticed that a few people have commented on maybe adding a piece of Glass to the top of this....... Sorry I forgot to say in the post that some Glass was purchased and it is laying flat on top of the Door.... It's not shown in the picture cause it was purchased after I had taken all the pics... Sorry for the confusion... But thank you all for your input :)..... It definitely is a must for sure..... a lot easier to clean and no food getting into all the Crevices ......

UPDATE NUMBER 2..........................

So I finally got a picture of the Island set up in the kitchen and it has the Glass top on it so you can all see what it looks

    Love this! I am making one out of a door that was given to me with glass panels, I may use them as shadow boxes and place little treasures inside! Saving money for the glass for the top! Thank you for the inspiration!

    I'm making ours from an old executive desk I found at a thrift store. Yours is so cute and creative. I'm hoping ours comes out just as nice. Thanks for the inspiration.

    My daughter did this a couple of years ago and added Casters to the bottom of the legs so it can be moved over to the wall or back into the center of the kitchen, depending on what the occasion calls for.
