*** The KITCHEN ISLANDS ARE NOW FOR SALE ON MY ETSY SITE*** CLICK HERE TO VIEW THEM!
Finally, I can say the kitchen islands are done, and ready for new homes. One of them, the all white one, was a custom order, and will be delivered to its new owner this weekend! I think they
both turned out lovely. A big thank you to Hood Contracting for making the tops of both of these dressers. The one with the chippy milk paint has a hickory top, and the other a butcher block top. Both of them have tons of character. I believe they date back to around the turn of the century, maybe slightly before. But they are both at least 100 years old. They really don’t make dressers like they used to. And these two will continue to have a long life with a new purpose. It was a funproject, and hopefully the other one will sell quickly so I can design another one, but until then, I think I will stick with painting chairs for a while. I wanted to take nice, pretty pictures of each of them in my kitchen. You know the kind in magazines with nicely staged bread and fruit laid out on top. But when were at the point of putting the tops on I realized I wouldn’t be able to get them out my front door if we mounted them when they were still inside my house! So to the garage they went. And hence, the slightly ugly driveway pics. But on a good note, it was 60 degrees today and was perfect picture weather. So here they are. What do you think? You want a dresser island in your kitchen now, don’t you! Oh and just for comparison, here is what they looked like before.
