after spending countless hours surfing the web for the perfect kitchen island with a very small budget, left me with very little to choose from. So I decided to make my own and off I went to hit all the second hand stores. SCORE!!
From the Office Space to the Kitchen Space
Found an old solid wood desk and also butcher block table top. Purchased both for $70.
Removed the top of the desk and moved it to the bottom for a platform for the island, attached the butcher block top and added bun feet to bring the island to counter height. I also removed drawers from one side of the desk.
I cut wood for shelves on the one side and center To cover opening where the drawers were, I added an old cabinet door to the front. I then covered the back and sides with tongue and groove Bead board and then painted with a navy blue and gray.
Added a towel rack that used to hang on the wall and new drawer pulls.
- Old wood desk and butcher block table top (2nd hand store)
- Bun feet paint and drawer pulls (Home Depot)
- Lumber (Spare lumber lying around from past projects.)
