Island Preview

I am an expert procrastinator.  I am the type of person that is late to parties because i am still wrapping gifts, even though i’ve known your birthday was coming for months.  But this time it’s not my fault.  I can’t help that i have had this old table top in my possession for almost two years (yikes) and haven’t done anything to it. 

Okay….so maybe I should have been a little more proactive.  But there is good news on the horizon!  I am finally going to be taking a woodworking class here in Nashville that will give me access to power tools!  I can’t wait to turn this into my new Kitchen Island!!!

With the help of a wood shop I plan on building and attaching legs and a bottom shelf to this table top.  My kitchen NEEDS this island.  The original mint paint color goes perfectly with my house.  The class doesn’t start for a couple of months, so in the meantime I am planning on carefully re-finishing just the top without ruining the awesome dirty mint color on the sides. 

Check back to see the progress and finished island… and to make sure I make it out of the wood shop in one piece! :)
