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.
If repurposed items are available to you, then you might want to consider constructing a kitchen island from old barn doors and topped with a glossy pine counter. Dressers and desks that have been given a subtle shabby chic look can also work well in these rustic kitchen island designs.
But whether you wish to seat as few as two or as many as eight, kitchen island designs with seating can be as practical or decorative as you′d like.
