Here is the mystery project I was working on, another island. Last summer I had made a wine bar/sofa table similar to this kitchen island. I used an old chair that sat on my deck for about 5 years.
I had it in a pile to junk because the top pieces broke, but then saw the mission style sides and thought, "I can make a table from this!" I used a wood top from a coffee table on this one, and some scrap boards for the shelves. It still needs a coat of poly and I am going to add locking wheels to the bottom, but haven't made it into town to get them.
The bonus project is only half done. I thought it was all the way finished, until I took a picture of it and saw that I needed a few more coats of spray paint. So here it is before black spray paint--a catchall for office supplies, chocolate, jewelry, etc. Do you see some of the thrift store finds I showed a few weeks ago. I am off to see a play.
PS--I changed my blog look (again), but don't get too used to it. This was totally a blue background on my laptop??? Not sure if this is me or not.
