Kitchen Island From Wall Cabinet
My daughter complained of no storage space and her kitchen was not big enough for a table to eat at so....Mom to the rescue! I took a slightly damaged kitchen wall cabinet, raised it up, put on casters and a drop leaf top of African redwood and red oak.
Started with a slightly damaged kitchen wall cabinet. I raised it up and used a furniture dolly I had for the base so it would be mobile
Because the back of the cabinet was unfinished, I attached some B-board type paneling to it and boards at the bottom so your feet wouldn't be at the storage area. It will have a small drop leaf so she will be able to eat at it.
I was lucky to obtain some beautiful African redwood and red oak from a customer to use as the top. Hear, it has been glued together and I will put the piano hinge on to attach the smaller piece to make the drop leaf.
I also put the B-board type paneling on the front as a request from my daughter. Here it is in stages of being painted. Although the top could be an actual cutting board we decided to use a polyurethane on it and just use a plastic cutting surface to protect it.
This is the finished results. She absolutely loves it and is very useful while she cooks as it give her more prep space.
