Monday at My Home

Happy Monday my Luvs!

Remember my pink kitchen island? Well I really loved that thing and I still can't believe I sold it but when I was practically given an even nicer one for $10 I couldn't refuse. I mostly love it for it's large countertop and open shelving.

We hosted a garage sale at our house a couple weekends ago where a few families sold there stuff at our house. One of the items was this kitchen island that was going for $75. I thought it was cool and all but I really loved my pink island and didn't really want to start another project. But when it hadn't sold halfway through the day and it started to rain, the owner offered to sell it to me for $10! How could I refuse?!!

It just needed a few upgrades and a little love...




We ended up sanding it, painting it, replacing the top, and adding new hardware. Not bad for $10 bucks huh?

Love your designs here, like the table in the living room. Did you use varnish and enamel paint here?
