This is a very good looking, practical job and must feel as though the space is twice as big.

I particularly like the use of scaffold boards, they are a great resource both new and recycled, the wood has to be structural quality and correctly seasoned so that it won't warp in any weather conditions.

I'm curious as to the finish used, I have used both epoxy and multiple coats of marine varnish, the varnish being much easier to redo later.

I usually get three to five years on a kitchen table with varnish.

Wow what a great project...such an improvement and such a lovely light and bright space! Love all the quirky elements to the design, the flash of floral print wallpaper, the yellow column and the fab over island pendant lights.
