Before you begin painting, apply an oil-based primer to all of the surfaces and let it dry for 24 hours. Once it's dry, use a sanding pad to remove any visible brush marks and wipe cabinetry clean. Using oil-based paint, apply two coats of paint, letting each one dry for 24-36 hours. You can also lightly sand the surfaces before applying the second coat. Let the paint dry for 48 hours before removing the masking paper and reinstalling the drawers, door fronts and hardware.
Repurposed options for a freestanding kitchen island include placing a kitchen-friendly surface on top of an old office desk or using an antique dresser to give a kitchen a vintage vibe.
Adding stools to one side of a kitchen island is a simple way of creating a casual dining space.
