Simply secure a solid surface to the top of a repurposed item, and turn drawers or cabinets into storage spots for kitchen items. The modern kitchen island often includes features that suit this particular style of kitchen, like a flat cooktop or a designated food preparation area.
Looking to add vintage flair to your kitchen island? One of the simplest ways is to repurpose a piece of vintage furniture—think a paint-peeling desk, a well-worn dresser or a flea-market find. Adding vintage character to the salvaged piece can be as simple as sanding and re-staining, or as elaborate as retrofitting the island with new shelves and fabric-insert cabinet doors.
Of course, a white kitchen island might also be achieved by painting wood cabinetry with a white wash stain or adding a white marble countertop to a dark wood cabinet base. These additions provide a soft touch to an otherwise rustic or rich wood surface.
