Island with Stained top

This item has been sold island
Yes, this island started out a bit sad looking. But after stripping and restaining the top, adding a fresh coat of white paint, and topping it off with some casters, a new drawer pull, and giving the drawer interior a fresh pop of aqua, it’ll fit into any modern kitchen.  Lots of room for storage – baskets, cookbooks, serving pieces or even pots & pans.  And with the casters you can move it out of the way when not in use!

Broyhill Sideboard

This item has been sold<sideboard

I found this beautiful, solid wood, Broyhill sideboard at the end of a driveway marked down at the end of a yard sale. I was shocked no one else had seen it’s beautiful classic lines and sturdy construction. I scooped it up and threw it in the back of the van.

A week later, it was sanded down, repaired, rejuvenated and given a fresh coat of paint.  I also replaced the dated wooden knobs with some beautiful, large glass knobs.  I think they really take it from okay, to fabulous!

This one was so pretty that it didn’t last long.  I listed it on Craigslist and by the next morning it was gone.  So sad to see it go……sniffle….
