A Handsome Kitchen Island
I actually did this one in my own home. I was in need for some extra counter space, storage, and a bit of color. By repurposing an old dresser, I was able to add a kitchen island to my home for pennies on the dollar. I contrast my all white kitchen by painting the base a soft mint green. I choose to make a countertop from leftover wood from a previous project of creating bookshelves. The paint add a splash of color and character, the wood a warm natural ambience. It is beautiful. It will be beautiful in your own home.
