It was just an idea.
The table is a good solid piece with great space and storage. Someone will want it.
|I never liked the steel feet on it and intended to change them at some point.|
|In fact I disliked them even more after breaking and splitting my toe on the corner of this piece just prior to this photo last week. I ran into it with bare feet.|
|I painted the legs and attached them with the leg plates in each corner. Then cut my dowels for leg support.|
|Drilled for the dowels at 7" from the bottom.|
Added the leg braces without gluing yet.
|Drilled holes for the wheels|
|Inserted the castors|
|Mounted the curtain rod brackets and painted another dowel for the towel rack.|
|Painted two copper handles black ( to match the handles on their kitchen cabinets). Cut a six foot oak board into three 24" pieces for slat shelving.|
|Glued in the dowels for leg supports and held with a ratchet tie down while drilling pilot holes for the shelving. Then used screws to attach the boards from the bottom of the dowels.|
|After the glue dried, painted the boards and giving the corner joints complete coverage.|
|The towel rack makes a great handle to glide the island on its wheels.|
|I did nothing to the original interior. (Sporting the color the exterior used to be).|
|I decided my son could use this large basket to hold his garden veggies on the shelf area while he cooks.|
|So I trimmed and hot glued the frayed areas. Sanded the entire basket, stained and clear coated it. The stain was the same warm Golden Oak that I did the coffee table in 5 years ago.|
|And they go together well.|
|Sporting my own kitchen attire, this baby is ready to rock and roll at my son's house.|
I can see him making his pizzas and other creations on this space while singing.
|His garden veggies will have a great spot here instead of on the countertop.|
|Having a "butcher shop block" look to it, the size and shape is perfect for the knotty pine kitchen they have.|
