Industrial tables, tables and carts, originally used in manufacturing or other plants, are another interesting option for a repurposed island. The bright orange of this curvy base provides a fun spot of color.These industrial tables can go for hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. If you are willing to do a bit of DIY, however, check local industrial auctions. A rusty base can be sanded and painted, and a new wood top can be fabricated, either by a handy homeowner or a carpenter.
Division on Anna Maria Island. In this Florida beach house, homeowners Missy and Phil Gerardi placed two hardworking islands side by side to create a room divider between the kitchen and the living and dining spaces. Connecting spaces in London. In Michael and Courtney Adamo’s Victorian home, a large island creates a transitional zone. The kitchen side is made for food prep, while the other is a great area where their four children can work on projects and homework.
Repurposed buffets, a rather plentiful item at antique stores is the vintage buffet. The 1960s versions are usually rather dowdy looking in their original wood finish, but give it a coat of paint and voilà — a whole new look. If you are going to paint it, you don’t need to find a pristine piece, either, meaning the price will be lower. Because furniture is rarely finished on the back, consider how you can finish this to fit both the piece and your kitchen, and whether you’ll need a carpenter’s help.
Announcing the island–kitchen–table. The more people required from their kitchens, the more they required from the kitchen—island. Usually located in the center or edge of the kitchen for extra storage also workroom, today’s island is attractive much the kitchen’s knowledge center — everything happens there.
