If you love cooking but have limited countertop space then a kitchen island would be a welcome addition to your favourite space at home. But if you don’t have the budget for a spanking new one, why not turn an old dresser into a kitchen island!

11. Dresser Turned Kitchen Island DIY - Thrift Town

This DIY project is a less pricey option since you can use an old dresser that’s just lying around. Or you can ask a friend who may have one that’s not being used anymore.

You can keep its drawers as storage for other kitchen essentials. You can also expand its top so you can have more work space and some leg space for when you place chairs on one side.

This kitchen island can also be mobile since you can install caster wheels under each leg. So you can move it around if you need the space. You can also use it as a breakfast bar.

You can cook other stuff while your kids eat on the kitchen island / breakfast bar since you have enough work space across the table. It’s perfect for the busy mom who has to do a gazillion things while keeping an eye on her kids!
