Before and After: Console Table Turned Kitchen Island

We've seen filing cabinets, and dressers turned into kitchen islands, but this is the first time I've seen a console table turned into one. And the outcome?? Gorgeous! And PERFECT for small spaces. The idea comes from  HGTV and the details of its transformation are pretty much what you see. New top, paint, hardware, and casters.

According to the accompanying notes, the makeover cost $265. I don't know about you, but that seem crazy expensive to me. First, console tables are a dime a dozen on Craigslist, and, second, the other do-dads including the paint shouldn't set us back more than $75 or so. That's including the top, which could be outfitted with inexpensive 12" x 12" granite tiles or the like.
