I really do enjoy my island. It has great storage and the added prep space has been wonderful. With the added counter space It has aloud me to make breads and pizzas and with the stainless steel top it is a breeze to clean. I really have enjoyed Ana's website with all the great plans and tips.

It was a bit more expensive because of the top. In total it was around $400.00
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine, Birch and plywood
I used a primer and then the Red paint on all the wood except the inside of the drawers along with the stainless steel top which I love. I used a spray primer to seal all the wood and then I used my Paint sprayer for the Red. I then used a gloss poly spay for the top coat to give it a nice shine.The stainless steel top I had made here in the Oakland, CA area. It works great to prep on and roll out pizza rounds.
