new life to an old desk
up-cycling is one of my favorite hobbies. it is so fun to take an old, worn down piece of furniture and make it new again. i do not refinish/refurbish furniture, nor do i claim to know how, but i do know how to add a bold, unexpected color to an old desk and turn it into a kitchen island (complete with casters and a butcher block counter top). living in a 550 square foot apartment with the tiniest of tiny kitchens, being resourceful is a must! my 1 square foot of counter space just wasn't going to cut it, so my kitchen island came to life and i love it dearly.
