Island construction is essentially simple; it’s a project most experienced woodworkers could manage fairly easily. Designer Brooke Norsworthy took on the project herself, building an oversized island with seating for four. She explains her process: “Using Ana White’s kitchen cabinet plans, I built these cabinets by hand using PureBond plywood with poplar trim. The island consists of four cabinets: two 24" bases and two 21" bases. I made the frame for the counter using plywood and 2x4s and took it to my local metal shop to be wrapped in stainless steel. I screwed the legs directly into the countertop just before I glued down the metal, creating a very spacious 4' x 8' kitchen island.”
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
White, Open Plan Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah turned a cramped main floor into a gorgeous, open plan kitchen, dining and living space. A dividing wall was removed and converted to a gourmet kitchen island with extra seating and storage. Antique white corbels and vintage wedding cake fixtures add a touch of elegance while a fun mosaic tile backsplash lends youthful charm to the bright space.
