Today I'm going to talk a little about the island we built.
To refresh you, it is made from a desk and hutch I bought on Craigslist for $20. Score!
Now, I didn't take very good pictures of the process because we were doing it mainly at night, in the garage and quite frankly, I was busy and tired. Let's take a look...
First we cut the bottom off the hutch to make it the same height as the desk.
And we attached a base.
We also added a shelf in the space where a chair would slide under the desk side.
The whole thing was put on locking casters.
Caulk it all.
Paint it all.
Add a countertop.
And you have a kitchen island.
Told you my "process" pictures suck! HA!
Let's look at the after pictures instead, shall we...
With the same hardware and paint as the rest of the kitchen, it looks like it was here the whole time. A match made in heaven...kitchen heaven that is...
I don't mean to brag, but we did a pretty AMAZING job on this island!!!!!!!!
