I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend and hopefully a day off for President's Day. I had a fun day of thrifting and picked up a few goodies.
I have been on the lookout for a small island for my kitchen (I know, I know. As always). We have our large wedding present island, but I wanted a little something to put in the middle of the kitchen... Just to make cooking easier and a place for centralized counter space.
I found this great little gem at the Sunnyslope St. Vincent de Paul and fell in love. So much potential!
I wasn't really loving the color and the wood stain. I wanted something rustic, and a bit more industrial looking, so I decided a makeover was in order!
I started by sanding the whole piece. I decided against stripping the wood finish, but instead used a wood stain to darken and distress the color. I also used Rust Oleum's Hammered finish spray paint to give the island a 'metal' look. Then I replaced the knob and sprayed a few poly coats.
