I actually did this makeover back during the summer and am just now posting photos... yes, I am THAT on top of things. :-) Back in May, The Thrifty Decor Chick posted her kitchen island makeover. I loved that she painted her island black so her island became my inspiration.
When I told the hubby that I planned to paint our kitchen island black, he went out and bought me an electric sander.... such a brave man. :-) I waited until he was out of town for a week to tackle the project. I wanted to have plenty of time, just in case I totally messed it up.... you know, so I could call in the pros if I needed to.
Here are a few before photos. Nothing really wrong with my island, I just wanted more of a piece of furniture type of look.
