I started the first step in trimming out our island today. The first challenge was to find a paint brush! I am normally pretty organized with painting supplies but not today.
The plywood we reinforced the island with is good one side 3/4". We opted for 3/4" because its structural and we wanted it to help carry the load of the counter. I used the primer I used on the cabinet doors and a high density foam roller.
One coat of primer.
Two coats of primer and it its looking pretty good. Would you believe I made those stripe cushions out of Ikea Tea towels 5 or 6 years ago?
I am going to trim the island in the same fashion that I trimmed the soffitt: square, simple and pretty.
This is the general profile I'm looking to achieve but not in marble.
