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.
If you have a bit of a commitment phobia. then a freestanding kitchen island might be the ideal option for adding more food preparation and storage space to your kitchen area.
After you´ve removed the hardware, wipe and clean the cabinets to remove any grease, dust or other grime. Once you`ve finished wiping down the cabinets, sand them lightly to create a slightly roughened surface for your paint to stick to. You`ll then want to remove all the drawers and drawer fronts from the island. Use masking paper to cover the interior, floor and countertop. Next you'll want to caulk any seams between the panels and doorframes; fill any holes with wood filler. Let the wood filler dry, then sand it until it is flush with the cabinet´s surface. Wipe the cabinetry clean once again to remove any traces of dust.
