We've completed the bead board island in the kitchen!
I love it!
It was my number one wish for our dream projects for 2011.
I was inspired by this one.
Here's where we started.
Ugly wood island that looked like plywood.
This is the pine bead board that we used (from Lowes)
There was a lot of measuring and
some glueing and
and some nailing.
until we had this.
Which was a big improvement already!
Do you agree?
The hubs did the priming and
painting (Benjamin Moore Blackberry in Pearl finish)
We took a much needed break that night.
For the corners we used the original corner covers, just painted black to finish it off.
Hubs also painted the outlet cover to match.
Here she is!
We also added bead board to the cabinet ends and painted them as well.
It adds a rich texture to the kitchen (well, I think it does!)
Side by side before and after.
So what do you think?
The whole kitchen was completed for under $100 which includes boards, paint and supplies.
