A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Painting the island dresser.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Painting the island dresser.

 Last year I put together this dresser and a piece of butcher block for our new kitchen island. I picked up the dresser for eighteen bucks and then we spent $37 on the block at Ikea.

We took off the original top of the dresser and just attached the top with an L bracket. Not a biggie.

After painting our kitchen gray and brightening things up around the house, my sweet neighbor kindly suggested that I should paint our island too. Of course she was right.

So I painted it the only bright color that I can actually stand for any amount of time.

I am so glad I have a nice neighbor to gently shove me in the right color direction.

I love it. LOVE. It.

Oh, color is Rustoleum, Strawflower.

Really cute. Love the color! Was it a spray paint? I have some kitchen chairs I was thinking yellow for.

Kirsty, I love the island AND the color! Very cool idea of replacing the top and using it in the kitchen...did you save the top just in case you change your mind one day? I know I'd probably change my mind in a couple months...like always ;)

LOVE it! I have a very large polished brass mirror that was in our home when we bought it. Can I paint it? You truly do inspire me in so many ways. Thank you for that.
