Kitchen Island Makeover: Painted Kitchen Island

  1. Salli says:

    You guys nailed this. Other than Ivy turning transgender… Not that there is anything wrong with that….whoops sitting on her tail.

    Seriously love how the island turned out.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahahahahaha I died after I had all of these shot and added to the post. ???? And thank you.

  2. April Johnson says:

    I absolutely love it! It looks like it came out of the antique store like that. You guys are so good! And, awwwe on Ivy & her tail ???? love her.
    I have bren working from home & during breakd between things I’ve been doing more organizing than projects. Like FINALLY sorting through mine & my husband’s family recipes that have just been shoved in an old recipe box. Love it when things are in their right place, the right way. Maybe a little OCD ????
    Take care you two!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahahaha seriously. We would be doing the same except we just moved. So things are pretty much stuffed everywhere.

  3. Mel says:

    That’s definitely Deb’s dog right there…????????????

  4. Lee Kuhn says:

    Seriously guys that looks awesome!!! You two definitely have a talent for this stuff! Really great job!

  5. Mary Baldwin says:

    It’s exactly how I imagined it to be ????????
    Also, thanks for including images and information on the products and process…. we’ll be using your techniques as we “reno” our 5th wheel????

  6. Deb Brown says:

    I love everything about this island project! You guys do such a great job and it really is inspiring to others who have no vision!

  7. Melissa says:

    Knew it would look beautiful, well, because it’s you two. Love it!! Always love anytime we get to see Ivy too. That face!! Love her. ???? Thanks for having me peeing my pants again from watching your stories. Good times!! As always, take care. ????????❤️❤️❤️

    Where did you did this gorgeous rug?

  9. Christy says:

    Looks awesome!! I’m getting ready to do this to my grandfathers old dresser from the 1920’s that I use as my TV stand in my living room. It’s going to be gorgeous! ???? Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. Kim says:

    Love it turned out great❤️

  11. Rita says:

    Turned out great like all your other projects. What type of planer does Deb have? We are looking at getting one for miscellaneous projects when we want to use reclaimed wood. BTW that is a great pic of Ivy, even with her tail.

  12. Pam says:

    I love it. You two make an amazing team and it turned out perfectly. I have done a lot of furniture (white of course) but have never heard of deglosser. I am going to look it up and just maybe I might paint our island tomorrow.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yay… and Yes.. I’ve used it a lot. It allows you to use whatever paint you have on hand.

  13. Kelly Monfort says:

    Looks gorgeous!!! Now I’m looking around my house wondering what can I paint?! ????

  14. Kelley Kolpitcke says:

    I adore it!!! Like all other tips and tricks, I wrote this one down in the filing cabinet in my head, so I won’t forget! ???? I tell my 2nd graders that and they believe me! So I’m in a transitional furnished condo and today, I moved every piece of furniture and decor…cleaned everything, then restyled it the way I like it. For now, my taste is “minimalist comfort” if that’s a thing. It’s farmhouse decor but too many chotskies. Or shotskies. Or whatever that word is. And I want a clean surface everywhere to make cleaning fast since we have to do it everyday. ????????‍♀️???? Love Ivy so much abd I think she knows she is the STAR of the show! ????

    I love it, looks great and just your style and blends in well !

  16. Leticia says:

    You two make a great team. This is amazing! Beautiful!

  17. Janice says:

    I love it! You gals did an awesome job. One question about the white paint…is it a flat, semi gloss or satin? If it isn’t a flat paint I am wondering about the finish in the areas after you distressed it. Or did you run the sander over the whole piece to make the finish all look the same. I hope I have word this to where it isn’t too confusing.
    BTW, did you see my bunny lamp like yours? I painted it, the color just didn’t work for me but I am in love with it.
    You two just crack me up, I look for your stories first thing every day!

  18. Tina Marek says:

    Love, love, love it! Question thou – when you apply polyurethane, does it have tiny bubbles on the surface? When I paint furniture and top with poly, it bubbles. Then I have to sand it and reapply poly….bet ya can’t guess what happens? It takes me forever to finish something and I’m starting to spray poly on the surface!! ????

  19. Shelly Powell says:

    I love your island! I really could use the storage of that piece.
    We are trying to paint our trim on the house. When we built it in 1993 we chose stained woodwork, so we are painting it white. It is taking forever!
    We just discovered the deglosser, recommended by our paint store. Works great!
    Ivy’s tail cracked me up, thanks for pointing it out, it caused me to almost pee my pants! You two are hilarious!! Look so forward to your posts!

  20. Claudia says:

    I love it!!!????????????

  21. Michelle says:

    Painted island looks fantastic!!

  22. Linda says:

    Looks amazing!! Love the cabinet and the rug. Is that a ruggable? If so what’s the name. I didn’t see it on the website. I love all y’all do. You’re both sooo talented. Stay safe during this “Coronus” outbreak!!!

  23. Julie says:

    Love it!!❤️ What ever y’all do looks amazing!! I have been working in my flowerbeds. I am feeling like I am getting something accomplished. This picture of Ivy is adorable. Even w her tail!! Seriously I needed a laugh! I wish you could come redo my cottage!! Keep making us laugh ???? we all need it!!
