I’ve been hoarding my scraps for the past six months or so hoping to build the island from Ana White and Shanty 2 Chic as soon as possible. I paid roughly $34 for this baby.
Everything but one 1”x8” and the project panel top came from the scrap pile. My awesome aunt and uncle’s renovation dumpster provided the missing 2”x4”s. There are nail holes, dings, and some general bruising, but who says that’s a bad thing?
You can see details on how I built and finished my blog.
Thanks for taking a look!

I keep pointing out that it’s not materials that make the project, but the craftsmanship. Yours is excellent. Really well done.

Thank you all for the comments and especially for those of you who took a second to take a look at my blog!

Monte, I completely agree. Beautiful things can come from from the dirtiest places if you just give them a little love!

Very pretty and rustic looking kitchen island. Like the use of scraps and the hardware choice. Great job!
