• Customer Created Colonial Kitchen Island Piece

    DIY Kitchen IslandBoasting functionality and style, the kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in the home. From the cabinetry, counter tops, fixtures, and island, the kitchen is a customizable masterpiece. I absolutely love seeing all of the kitchen designs from our customers, demonstrating their personality in such a creative and beautiful way. The time, attention, and craftsmanship put in to kitchen renovations, remodels, and other designs is amazing.

    Today, let’s take a look at a beautiful colonial style kitchen from Jim R. of Virginia. Jim designed and crafted a kitchen island to accent his kitchen, while adding a functional element to the room. Using four of the Manchester Hutch Island Legs (Part # 1734), Jim decided to add built in drawers to the island as well. The Manchester Island Leg is a perfect style for adding drawers to the piece. The island leg features a 16 1/2″ turned section at the bottom of the leg, while leaving the top 19″ a square block to allow for creativity and design. Jim chose a paint grade leg, which he finished in a white color to really make the island stand out.

    Ikea KitchenJim told us, “We custom built the entire project and it features a 31″ drawer box made of poplar and oak for the box bottom.  Self closing slides from Knape and Vogt (KV Model 8417).” He also noted that “the Countertop is a Jon Boos blended hard maple.”

    Jim also added about the kitchen, “The picture will show our Ikea Adel Medium Brown Shaker kitchen with granite.  We chose to simply paint the legs and base white to not compete with the cabinets.  Also our home is colonial, so staying with the look of rich stains for stair treads, white risers and spindles, all with oil rubbed bronze door hardware throughout…  Just made sense to keep it simply pretty for the island legs. Wonderful legs and we will purchase again from Osborne!!!”
