Kitchen Island DIY

Kitchen island gets a cheerful facelift

Since I made the long distance move to Portland, I've been working hard to make my new apartment feel like home. This is something I've always enjoyed about moving into a new space, but I think it's particularly important when making a big transition in life. A friend found this kitchen island, which was free (yay!) but needed a little love. 

I've never delved into the world of DIY or furniture rehabbing in the past, but I have a newfound passion for it since moving here. I've got a handful of DIY projects on the horizon now (even including reupholstering my dining chairs!). This piece was the perfect starter piece because the risk of ruining it was relatively low. I'm really happy with the result! See the before below.
