I love to transform furniture. I am always on the hunt for old pieces that can be used in a different way. The picture below is an old dresser I converted into an island for my kitchen. This piece was originally white-washed (I wish I had the before picture). The first step of this project was removing the four bottom drawers. Then, I painted it a blue, then red, then decided on the yellow. After that I put a brown stain over the yellow just to tame the color a bit. The black was added to the tops and remaining drawers, then I sanded the edges for an aged effect. Finally, I added new drawer hardware, and baskets to the bottom.
(BELOW: dresser turned island)
Super easy project, and I think it turned out pretty darn good!
