I do not think I have ever made two exactly alike, which is part of the appeal also for this abstract, random, not assembly line kind of a girl.
So this one started with a wonderful drawer that was already in a "casing" or had sides and slides so it opens and shuts. It did not have a top at all.
I added 2x6's for legs,
a beautiful reclaimed wood top that is polished up with coconut oil,
and a shelf on the bottom for storage and stability (See some of my canned applesauce down there--I made 20 quarts--so yummy!).
I bought this great $2 rusty piece for a towel holder,
it slides in and out--spray it well so the rust doesn't come off on towels. Does anyone know what it might have been? It had a great place on it with holes so it was easy to screw it right on to the island.
A hook and bottle opener finish this island. She is loaded up, ready for a show this weekend--hope she finds a happy home.
