if you can't REALLY do it...

atleast you can pretend to. ;)

This was our island before hand.

It was "FREE OR SALVATION ARMY" on the side of the road.
It used to be a hutch, it appears. Now it's going to be my island for my kitchen ;)

First I took the drawer and doors off


Then I dismembered it. LOL. I removed the counter top, the trim on the bottom, and all the hardware. I also scrubbed the crap out of it.


Then I set it up in my kitchen to see what measurements I wanted to take with me when I bought the wood for the counter top.


I showed this photo to a friend who immediately claimed "I don't get it". LOL.
I'm a very visual person too, so i knew what she meant. So I hopped in photoshop and got... well, a little carried away.
Here is my kitchen before we moved in

Here is my completed kitchen... according to photoshop ;)



Now lets see how close we can get to that...
