When we moved into our house, our kitchen was very dark with all of the oak cabinets and there was no kitchen island. Our kitchen is only 11 x 17 so we needed something narrow with a lot of storage.
I’ve had quite a few questions about our kitchen island, and I was able to dig up a few pictures on how we made it.
Originally we had bought a tall bar height table and used it with stools underneath( until the kids started climbing and pulling them over.).
We had had an old bathroom cabinet in storage that after measuring we found fit perfectly underneath. Once I painted it, it made it look like one cohesive piece.
It sat detached for a long time ( you can see at the top) and with our kitchen remodel; we added bun feet to bring up the height underneath.
It received a new coat of paint and a fresh look. One day I would like to put a marble top on it as well.
I’ve seen a lot of other great options for islands as well such as:
-old dressers and buffets
-vintage file cabinets
Ikea also has some great kitchen islands that aren’t too much, that are very similar to what we started with.
P.S. I found out this weekend that my kitchen redo is supposed to be in
September’s issue of County Living!
