A Radio Stand Converted Into a Red Kitchen Island

Grandma's House DIY Its been a hell of a ride since I started this blog and renovated and moved into Grandma's house back in 2015. I got married, divorced, lost my doggo soul mate, spent two years as a single gal, remodeled everything, threw my back out countless times and found a man who wanted to get on board with me! Come check out what we're up to these days by clicking the link!

Around here we really do it all: refinish old furniture, re-purpose old pieces or build it from scratch. Lodi and I have some serious plans for this old farm. For the first time I have a real partner! I can't wait to see what the two of us can do together - this is gonna be so much fun! 

The water damage covered up easily with paint

Love all of that storage for my cook books!

Suggested materials:
  • Radio Stand

    I love the way the poinf out any damage to a piece as not to get any flack for painting it. " There was a bad spot the size of a dime. Un repairable " STOP painting these pieces of art!!!!

      @Tonya Zepeda It would certainly have been fixable, this is actually a rare case where I did paint lol, Mostly my rule of thumb is that as long as it is veneer and not solid wood I don't feel bad for painting
