Small Rolling Kitchen Island Rustic X

This was my husband's first furniture build and he really enjoyed it. The whole project took about three or four hours to build. He changed the top to a plank style with Douglas fir pine planks which I then beat up with a hammer and a screwdriver to look old. The top was then stained with five layers of Minwax Ipswich Pine and sealed with two coats of satin polyurethane. The base of the island was chalk painted, then distressed. I then took the Minwax furniture stain and wiped it on over the chalk paint and immediately wiped it off to age it and darken the chalk paint. I then sealed it with Rustoleum Chalked Matte Clear. We love our new kitchen island and it really fits in with our little cottage!
