Sweet Little Kitchen Island...

It's finished!!!! My little Kitchen Island Project is completed! Yay.....

Here she is before..... My $1 purchase (read more here and here)


 Sean ripped off the back and the door, added legs and built mini towel rails,


We sanded, painted, varnished.... and attached the chopping board with liquid nails



I liked how the 3 shelves all had a different colour, so I kept them like that.....

This weekend I played around with a few looks..... so many choices.

Here she is after.....



 

 A before and after shot..... Im loving it!



What do you think? I hope you like it as much as I do...


Take care everyone,

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook :-)
