Need More Kitchen Storage? Turn a Dresser Into an Island

This little island used to be a dresser. We picked it up at a thrift store for $45 and turned it into that island.
This project was not hard. We removed the top of the dresser and replaced that with our wood counter. We also added corbels for support and to extend the counter so that we could have a sitting area. We love it.
Do you see how we connected the corbels. The corbels are screwed to those wood pieces. The dresser was given a few coats of white paint and the top counter top was stained.
We definitely have the extra storage that we need now. If you come across a little dresser than happens to be the right height, get it! you will not regret it.
