This Buffet Will Be Turned Into A GORGEOUS Barnwood Top Kitchen Isla


Soon this piece will be totally transformed into a kitchen island with a barnwood top, chicken wire doors, and opening in the center, an extension on the side, and with wheels...I might have left out a thing or two but you get the picture! :)

This is where it begins....

The tearing apart begins....the center portion will be opened up. Since the shelf goes across the entire piece it will be taken out, side walls will be added to the center and the shelf will be cut for each end.

Wheels were added to the bottom with new boards going around the bottom so the wheels are hidden, an extension for the top was added, and wainscoting. Soon the barnwood top will be in the making!

Here are some pieces of barnwood just laid out on the top, they will be glued and doweled together. The drawers will be getting new handles so the holes were all filled in and sanded. It's painted with my favorite paint, Annie Sloan's chalk paint.

It's all put together, and urethaned. I am so in love with barnwood, it's an obsession!!! :)

    Very nice. It's sad that so much usable furniture is brought to the dump. Reuse, re-purpose, recycle..... This is a gorgeous piece.
