we recently finished this custom kitchen island for a customer. they had an idea and some existing pieces of furniture.
one was an old kitchen table that held some sentimental value so they didn't want to get rid of it completely. the other was a pine cupboard that was serving as the island.
we cut the kitchen table in half, created a back splash with the extra wood and attached it to the cupboard at bar height.
some old post from a headboard were turned upside down as legs. so fun!
for the back splash, we wanted to do something functional so here is that idea we posted about yesterday. the spindle turned mug rack!
