Don't you love those friends who get what you do and are always keeping their eyes open for projects for you?
A few months ago while I was selling at a show, I started getting messages from a friend who was in another town about an estate sale that had incredible deals. I was so busy that I couldn't respond right away, but was finally able to tell her to buy whatever she thought I might like. I told her she can pick for me any day! This little cupboard was one of those things. I think it was originally part of some kitchen cupboards that someone had added some wheels and a top to.
I saw the potential and knew right away that it would make a great kitchen island/bar piece.
I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Coco paint and added a reclaimed wood top that extended enough on the ends for stools to tuck under it. The stools were given to me by another friend. I painted them in Coco as well.
The bottom drawer had a broken corner on the front that I couldn't repair. I used thin reclaimed wood to make a new drawer face for it.
The handles were broken and there was some wood chipped off around the handles. I made chunky handles from some wood slices that covered the chipped wood spot.
I also replaced the small wheels with larger, locking casters. It is a fun piece, perfect place for a cup of coffee (my daughter wants to know why I made her pretend to drink air coffee, haha!) or a glass of wine. It has a little shelf inside for more storage.
