How to Create a DIY Kitchen Island

We’re in love with Simply Today Lifes latest kitchen update!

She created a DIY kitchen island from a desk for her farmhouse style kitchen.

Dixie Belle Paint in Savannah Mist was used on the legs and No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut was used on the wood.

“I sat down and came up with the easiest way to convert this desk into my kitchen island. Once I knew what I wanted to do with the desk and how I wanted it to look, it was up to the hubby to make it happen. Of course, he came up with something fancier than I had thought of still staying on budget. As much as I love getting my hands dirty, he loves to build things so it was all on him. Almost immediately he began working on my farmhouse kitchen island. 

Once he had the entire kitchen island built I started painting and staining. I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Savannah Mist to color the legs of the desk. I wanted a grey color that would match my kitchen walls, but not too light. I did two coats of paint on the legs.”
