Guys I have wanted to make a kitchen island of my very own for a long time. So when we were buying this house, it had the perfect space for the island I'd dreamt about forever. I bought a $25 dresser that I wanted to use because of the perfect amount of storage for baking sheets & all other baking utensils. It had ample drawer space! Then I turned it into a beautiful work space for my kitchen!
Perfect Size & Height Kitchen ISLAND DIY
The final look of my beautiful custom kitchen island.
$25 old dresser
Removed all the drawers and hardware to get ready to clean and paint.
Ball feet that I purchased to add on the bottom for height & character.
Removed the bottom trim on the dresser for better base support so that I could install the ball feet.
Painted with chalk paint and ready to apply wax.
Had the hubby cut and round off corners on the countertop I wanted.
Found some antique corbels to use on the island overhang.
Perfect height and size.
After the paint and wax seal. (I left off the little door on this cubby so I could put some of my favorite cookbooks.)
Left an overhang on one side (to house garbage can underneath) and another overhang on the back for stools for a breakfast bar!
