Vintage Desk into Kitchen Island
by Lisa from 2Perfection Decor
It all started with the FIND.. I had been searching for the ‘Perfect’ piece for months.. Finally I found it at my local Re-Store. $25 for the perfect size DESK.. It had a working easy sliding drawer and a cabinet with a shelf which was a major bonus..Plus this great open shelving area, cause gosh knows I LOVE Eye Candy! But the sizing was perfect. Except the height, colour and lack of character.
Next came the counter top.. the current desk had a black vinyl type laminate top. I knew I wanted to have a rustic plank top but in order to add the planks, the top had to be even and sturdy. So we added 3 thin shims of wood across the top so the planks had something to rest on.
