Coffee Table to Kitchen Island

After redoing furniture for our livingroom, I needed to do something with this coffee table that I refinished a few years ago. My future daughter-in-law wanted a country kitchen island... so there you have it... I turned this table into a win-win!
Having a "butcher shop block" look to it, the size and shape is perfect for the knotty pine country kitchen they have.
All it took was this big ol' coffee table
Adding new legs and castor wheels...
Leg supports and slat shelving ...
Paint ...
Curtain rod brackets and a dowel for a towel rack ...
Then rock and roll!

The towel rack makes a great handle to glide the island on its wheels.
