I turned a desk into an apothecary style kitchen island… in 3 weeks!

So I knew that I wanted a kitchen island (eventually) and that I wanted something in my kitchen to have an old world look.. I was actually thinking it would be my built in pantry, but clearly things changed.

I heard about The Furniture Flip Challenge by The Builders Challenge and it was being hosted by two bas ass DIY women I already followed on Instagram and decided I was up for the challenge. Mind you, everyone around me thought I was NUTS

I poured everything I had into the flip and I absolutely love the way it turned out. I didn’t win the challenge and I’ll never know if I could have, because I completely forgot to attach my before photo to my final submission (dumb ass move).

I documented the whole transformation on my instagram page and its saved in my highlights, if you want to go take a look.

This is definitely not a How-To post but if you want to tackle your own desk to kitchen island and you have any questions feel free to ask them below. 

For now.. I’m off to start another project, I hope you join me!
