A DIY Rolling Kitchen Island Transformation with 0 Chemical
Hold on to your hats, folks, because I am about to reveal another DIY kitchen island that’s going to knock your socks off. Literally, this thing was a “rolling kitchen cabinet” before it was even cool.
And let’s talk about that butcher block.
It’s heavy, it’s unusual, and it’s just screaming for some wheels.
So, our intrepid DIY-er got to work.
First things first, remove those cabinet doors, hardware, and wooden plugs.
And that decorative board across the front?
We’re going for a more simplistic farmhouse look here.
But let’s talk about that varnish.
Our DIY-er knew they couldn’t just paint over that beautiful butcher block, so they grabbed their Surfprep Sander with 80 grit paper and got to work.
And let me tell you, folks, if you haven’t tried the Surfprep Sanding System, you’re missing out.
It’s a game-changer when it comes to working with wood.
No chemicals are needed here, folks.
Now, adding wheels to any piece of furniture takes a little planning.
First, you’ve got to turn the furniture upside down and check for any structural issues.
And wouldn’t you know it, there were none with this piece.
But wait, there’s more. Our DIY-er knew their wheels wouldn’t fit, so they got creative.
They cut a piece of 2 X 4 and screwed it to the butcher block to create a stable base for the wheels.
It’s like engineering meets woodworking.
So there you have it, folks.
Another DIY kitchen island that’s going to make your friends green with envy.
And who knows, with those wheels, you might even be able to take it for a spin around the kitchen.
