Liz's kitchen island was driving her bananas. Its stained honey oak top just wasn't jiving with the new industrial stools she snagged awhile back. So Liz forked over about 4 bucks and 5 hours of her time to make over the top of the island. After sanding it down, she applied a rich walnut stain and followed it up with a wipe-on poly.
And as for the island and those industrial stools...they're getting along marvelously now, as their tops now match the top of the island. (See the stools peaking out?)
