The House That Creaks #3 The Kitchen Island

hi there. welcome to my 3rd project in this noisy squeaky house!!
I bought this kitchen island from a yard sale for $45.00 !! woohooo. I thought it was a great price for such a sturdy piece. We did add the granite piece on top when we had the granite counter tops installed. but that was all until i decided i needed to be BLACK.. The whole time I was painting it i was singing the Rolling Stones song "Paint it Black" tee hee

I loved that i just fit so perfectly into the kitchen. I felt pretty lucky to find a piece at a great price and fit in so perfect.
Here she is all beautiful and black. OH, I think I forgot to mention that I SPRAY PAINTED the entire piece. I have seen blogs that had BEAUTIFUL projects using spray paint. I totally thought to myself NO WAY!!! spray paint is streaky.
Being the big brave dog that I am I just had to see for myself. I told my self that if it did not work out the I will just roll paint over it.

I also bought so new cool hardware. However TOTALLY spaced on the hinges! I will get around to that... eventually. I have a credenza I want to do THEN... the kitchen cabinets (gasp!) I believe I am going to have to do the cabinets in sections. It is a pretty big kitchen (not complaining). I had planned on rolling on the paint for the cabinets but I believe I have made up my mind to spray paint those as well!! oooo... i am gettin CRAZY these days!
One last look! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gorgeous! Hey, you can spray paint those hinges too. When I EVER get around to re-finishing my daughter's dresser, I'm going to spray paint the hardware because new hardware is so expensive. Your kitchen is looking great. I love your wall color. What brand spray paint did you use on your cabinet? Anything special or just regular old spray paint?

LOVE it! Definitely just spray paint those hinges. I kind of dig the contrast of the light and dark! Whatever you do will look fab-u-lous!!

Wow, you are a master of paint! I may have to give you a call to help me out! I miss seeing you, when are we ever going to get together. Maybe a girls night with all of us getting loud and crazy!
