Plus now I have a lot more counter space for preparing food. YAY!
My girlfriend and I are not big fans of the existing counters and shelves. They work fine, but are not the color/style we'd prefer. My girlfriend went so far as to say that this Island is the nicest looking thing in our kitchen!
A few days after making this I went out and bought a set of hooks. I attached one hook to one side to hang an oven mitt...
...and repeated the process on the other side for a second mitt.
Then I hung 4 more on the longer side to hold some pans...
...and made a towel holder out of scrap wood and a dowel. I used the blow torch on these as well, so everything matches.
You can even fit a roll of paper towels on it.
So there you have it! Plans for a nifty Rustic Kitchen Island.
Thanks for reading!
