Imagine my surprise when I discover this:
That's right, a gift card...a wedding gift card, to be exact. From twelve years ago. For almost enough to cover the project! I checked it out to make sure it was still valid, and yes indeed it is! In fact I already used part of it to buy some tongue & groove bead board for the facing of the island.
The rest of my materials list looks like this:
- ¾" plywood, for top
- Ardex Feather Finish, a skim-coat concrete surface.
- Dex-o-tex 2-part epoxy sealer
- Primer (already have!)
- Antique White paint (I think my sister & her boyfriend have some left over from a project)
- Corbels, to support the wider countertop, so stools can fit under.
I think that's all! This is going to be easier than I thought...and it paid for itself! Almost.
