Rustic Shelf Kitchen Island

My chippy paint rustic shelf which I originally made for outdoors has found its way inside.

Remember Me?

A few months back I found a small kitchen island out for trash which I rescued and fixed up. It has been sitting in my kitchen for the past several months in the above location however I decided to sell it. I never had anything in this spot before (just a large open kitchen) but its amazing how quickly we get accustomed to our surroundings. I decided I wanted something else to fill the void.

Hello Rustic Barn Wood!

So, what do you think? I love merging design styles. Rustic and Modern actually work quite well when combined. The shelf looks super in its new spot and I'm rather glad to have it indoors without fear of the wood deteriorating from weather conditions. I unfortunately will have to cut a good 4 inches from both sides to allow for better flow around it - however, I know it will still be a great addition to the space.
