The woman had an idea for a vintage kitchen island, so when she heard about a furniture flip challenge she decided to join it. At first, no one around her believed in this project. But they were definitely wrong.

First, Christina removed the desktop and added a solid base at the bottom of the desk.

She also added a new extended wood top and two legs to fit stools underneath.

The light green paint gives the kitchen island a nice vintage look. The woman used wood trim and vintage-looking pulls to make apothecary-style drawers.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
