We’ve finally gotten started on some much-anticipated changes around our kitchen! As part of the shuffle, we have been mostly using this tall table as a kitchen island because we lack sufficient counter space. When the entire project is done, there will be another table that we actually use as a table on the other side of the room.
To make the old table look the part of an island, I have a multi-phase plan. Phase one is now complete – covering the old, chippy surface with Instant Granite to make it look like it’s topped with a slab of stone!
Instant Granite is a giant roll of adhesive-backed vinyl. It was pretty easy to apply, though there was a bit of a learning curve. We definitely got faster as we went; this project took us a total of about 45 minutes from start to finish, but if we had to do it again I think it would take even less time now that we’ve perfected the technique. You may want to practice on a smaller test surface first, especially for cutting corners, which is the part I found the hardest.
The material seems very durable – I am interested to see how it holds up over long-term use. Meanwhile, this is an inexpensive solution to my counter space problem. Eventually we may even cover the rest of our counters to match!
The next phase of the project will involve making curtains to enclose some space below the table, which will hide our recycling that we keep tucked away down there until we take our next trip to the recycling center.
Thanks so much to the folks at Instant Granite for providing the materials to make this project possible!
