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

      Beppe This is a Kreg Jig...It is used to make pocket holes in the wood so you can join 2 pieces of wood together... Hope this helps...

    Brilliant! I have been trying to come up with a cool idea for an island similar to this. I was actually thinking about using a couple of wall cabinets for extra storage as the base but I love what you did too! Thank you for the inspiration :)
