Kitchen Island Impersonator

This former Singer sewing machine cabinet turned kitchen island is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house.  I swear, if I had ten of these things I could find a place to use every single one of them.  It's just the perfect size to fit anywhere. But, at least for now, I'm liking it right here in the kitchen.

  Kitchen islands don't have to come from the kitchen island store with a 
tag that says "kitchen island".  
What about a dresser or old chest?  Try adding a slab of granite to an old work bench. 
Think outside the box...

  1. That's a great idea for an island. I love old sewing cabinets. I've used them for side tables before, but never for an island.

    Did you do your floors? Are they real brick? I love the look. They're stunning.

  2. You won't believe this but the floors are made out of a pile of old bricks we found in the back yard when we bought the house. They were completely covered with grass and weeds. We had them cut in thirds and I laid them. It was time consuming because they are all different sizes and shapes but I think it was worth it. I'm glad you like them...


  3. I LOVE the floors!!! (came over here from Funky Junk btw) I adore your kitchen. Great job. =)
