Yay. I’m so excited. Part two of my kitchen project is done. Here are some before and after shots:
This is the old cabinet I chose to repurpose for my kitchen island. It’s a mess!
First I had to take of the hardware and wash everything really good.
Then my dear husband spray painted everything. It wasn’t the best day for spray painting because it was a little breezy. The paint was blowing in his face. Not sure how he handled the smell. What a great guy 🙂
Guess I didn’t take to many pictures after he had finished. That’s because I was to busy working on the new top.
We bought a large sheet of oak plywood and had the guy at Home Depot cut it into a 32 x 38 piece. I’ll use the rest for other projects. I don’t have a router, so I we bought some 3/4 trim for the sides. I made my miter cuts and nailed it on with my nail gun. Then I caulked it, sanded it, primed and painted it. We chose a cobalt color but it turned out a little lighter than I had invisioned. I still like it though.
and I LOVE THE RESULT!
