What does one do when you have limited counter and storage space in your new rental kitchen? You look for an affordable solution at IKEA. Obviously their furnishings are reasonably priced but not always the most attractive options. We found the GROLAND kitchen island for a pretty good price and it met all our requirements. The only issue was it was very sad looking. However, that did not stop us. All we needed was a bit of wood stain and a can of white paint. I actually had the white paint left over from a previous project and we borrowed the wood stain from a family member. Our island update didn't cost us anything but time. The kitchen island went from Blah to a smashing Ta-Da! It really brightens up the dated wood kitchen and gives us the much needed counter space we have been longing for.
