Rolling Kitchen Island and Pantry Storage

1 Yesterday
The Kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house, because hey, we all need to eat! I like to pretend that I keep my kitchen organized all the time, when in reality my six kids who...make their own school lunches, help do the dishes, and frequent the snacks WAY too much...constantly un-do my awesome organizing skills. To top it off, it seems like I never have enough storage space!
Well, I am happy to share my rolling kitchen island with pantry storage! If you have a small pantry or a kitchen without an island then this is a great project for you! I kind of love it!

Most of this island is build out of pre made crates so it is a quick and easy build.
I designed this in three sections so that you can add or omit sections to make it to fit your needs.
Strips of plywood attached with glue and nails make drawer slides for smaller crates.
Attach everything together...
And you have an awesome and very useful project!
Oh, and you can use both sides which makes it even better! Can you see why I love it?!
