What color of interior paint first and then Ralph Lauren tea? Also where can I get the shelf brackets. They are beautiful.

This is just an old table found at a garage sale. The metal trim was a salvaged piece of metal known as Victorian flashing, used around the top of a house to keep the birds away. It was just long enough to nail around 3/4 of the table. Hunt your local antique shops or perhaps Ebay for one.

I bought the table as-is at a garage sale and added the metal trim later. It is antique flashing used on Victorian houses which I found at a flea market somewhere.

I made oak counters for my laundry room. I used Wacom's Butcher Block on it and I am forever repairing the water damage. It looks nice and the finish isn't that hard to fix but it is still a pain.

What kind of wood did you use for countertop? I hear maple is very hard, but I love the walnut. What kind of oil do you use on it? And since you are oiling it does that mean no stain or polyurethane was used?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Clever Combo: Aged Wood and Metal
Capturing the look can be as simple as tracking down the perfect piece. This island may be small, but with repurposed metal and wood, its aesthetic effect is striking.
Samantha Schoech added this to 12 Inspiring Real-Life Vintage Kitchens
Go simple, spare and elegant. Vintage pieces like this chandelier and island table are rustic and chic, but not slick or new. The muted colors keep it calm.
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Inspiring Ideas for Vintage Kitchen Islands
Create Your OwnWhat do you get when you combine an old wood table and a piece of Victorian flashing? A one-of-a-kind island. Any kind of old finish should be sealed for safety around food and easy cleaning.
