Island Legs

I've always wanted to add legs to the
bottom of my kitchen island.
I wanted it to look more like a piece of
furniture, and less like a basic builders
island made of cabinets. 
Without the legs. 
We had already painted the cabinets a 
bright blue and added the salvaged
 butcher block top. (see This Post
I drew a template of a curved leg onto 
some wood we found in the garage.
Larry cut it out and we painted it with
leftover paint from the island project.
 4 inches high.
We cut 8 pieces to make the 4 legs.
It was a quick project. 
No cost and a little time gave me the look 
I wanted. Just a little something we 
MAY'd toDAY.

Have a great week!
