How to make a unique kitchen island from an old set of closet, doors. Shabby DIY. We started by cutting one of the doors at our desired height of 34 1/2 inches. We left about 6 inches below the door handle to give us room for the table legs. Next, we cut out the louvers on the bottom of the door. We sanded the face and sides of the door. Then we tediously sanded the remaining louvers.
We repeated the same process on the other door as you see here. Next, we cut 4 boards to build. Our frame. Two frame board were nailed to the top. Then two more boards were nailed to the bottom. This completes our basic island frame. Next, we cut 10 boards for our bottom shelf and laid them out. These boards were spread evenly and nailed into place. We gave the island a coat of primer to ensure good paint. Adhesion later.
Once the primer dried. We painted the island with two coats of chalky finish paint. We went with black, but they have about a dozen different colors to choose from. Next, we reinstalled the old doorknob to give the island a little more character. We had several large scrap butcher block pieces from another project and we chose one that would work well for the project. To cut a nice straight line. We clamped down a straight edge and used it as a guide. The butcher block was then sanded to a smooth finish.
Then we played the butcher block face down, so we could easily attach the frame on the underside using L, brackets, and screws. To finish this island, we applied a coat of mineral oil to protect the wood and bring out the color wood grain. This kitchen island is a great addition to any kitchen. It has practical uses such as preparing food, or it's great for storing your favorite coffee and wine. Accessories. Books can be conveniently stored on the sides.
