Kitchen Island From a Dresser
Our eat in kitchen was driving me bonkers. There was never enough room for everyone. I've wanted to put an Island in our kitchen for as long as I could remember, then we found this dresser and the light bulb went off! the rest is DIY history.
We found this dresser on the street behind our house with a free sign on it. painted it, and added a wood countertop. We now have a gorgeous kitchen Island that seats about 10 people, and it only cost us around 80.00
We then added legs to it
It was then Primed, painted, and distressed.
We then added wood shims to the back to cover up the flimsy dresser board.
After that We took 4 6"x10" wood planks attached them together and also to the top of the dresser. We then sanded, stained and sealed them. The above picture is our end product and I just love it!
