Small Kitchen Island Photos
This is a few years back when my dad originally made the stand for me so I’d have a place to put some of my appliances. He made it to fit that spot exactly!
When I realized it would work for our small kitchen island the first thing we did was give it a fresh coat of white paint.
Next, some contact paper was purchased that matched the kitchen theme and it was placed on top.
To make it extra sturdy, I’ve decided once this wears out I will put on a new cover of contact paper and then give it 3 coats of water soluble varnish just like I did for our bathroom contact paper countertop makeover. It turned out beautiful and sturdy! Check out that post to see the tools you’ll need to do it. It’s simple to do and worth the effort.
I wanted a towel rack on the island, so rather than buy one Roy made one from wood and a dowel and two ends caps we had.
I panted it and added some bright towels.
On the other side I hung a white metal hook to hold one of my larger wood cutting boards since we use the island for cutting a great deal of the time.
It’s perfect and not so big that it gets in the way and it allows us the extra bit of space we need!
