Sometimes, you outgrow certain furniture items but don't necessarily want to kick 'em to the curb. So what do you do? Turn them into something new and functional, of course!
Lesli DeVito from My Old Country House did just that with this school desk her son had outgrown. She originally purchased it 8 years earlier for $40 from a country store but new she could give it a new purpose. So, she got to work transforming it into a stand alone kitchen island, complete with casters!
Check out how she did it and get some ideas for your own DIY kitchen island on Lesli's blog My Old Country House.
