Kitchen Island Makeover

I love islands! Of course one surrounded by water are the best kind, but having one in the kitchen isn't bad either.

 This makeover started with a cabinet I found at a local thrift store.

It had good bones and there was a shelf already in place on the bottom behind the doors. The top was a little loose so we did re-attach it with liquid nails.

I didn't worry about it oozing out because I knew it would be covered when complete. I then used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Midnight Sky to give it a whole new look.

It is a rich black color that turned out great. A little hardware was added to one side only.

For the back I just added pallet wood to cover. Then I stained it and painted the same black. 
It was then distressed for a rustic look.

A piece of trim board was added to the top for a transition piece.

The inside of the cabinet was in great shape and just needed a good cleaning. 

I also added new drawer pulls that were more with the style of the island.

The top was sanded and re-stained for a clean look. It was also finished with poly.

The rest of the painted cabinet was given 2 coats of Dixie Belle Clear Coat in Satin Finish.

Wheels were added for easy mobility and then they lock in place.

I love the way it turned out but unfortunately it does not fit into my kitchen space.

Maybe it will become a patio bar instead for all the island summer drinks we will be having!

Thanks for stopping by,
