Ideas for Build Rolling Kitchen Island
A kitchen island is used to cook and gather guests. Having a rolling kitchen island adds even more functionality, as it can easily be moved around. Buying a brand new kitchen island can cost a nice shilling. But, constructing a do-it-yourself version not only allows you to be creative with the result, but save a few dollars in the end. Determine the size of Kitchen Island based on the available kitchen space. Make sure there is ample space around it so you can walk freely, open a dishwasher, fridge and surrounding cabinets comfortably without hitting the island. Find a kitchen table to be renovated. Use your own or find a deal at a yard sale or recycling store.
Use low sandpaper roughly and prepare the table for the painting. Apply two layers of paint. For a farmhouse or rustic finish, the edges of the table legs with sandpaper easily need to reveal some of the stain below. Another option is to leave the paint for a more modern finish. Have a piece of butcher block worktop cut so it fits the table. Attach to the table with screws from the underside of the table at all four corners and in the center of each side of the table. Another option is to omit the butcher block counter for a country farmhouse look.
Turn the table again and screw the wheel to the bottom of the table legs as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Buy wheels that have a locking mechanism to hold the island instead. Place to backless saddle style counter stools at the table for guests to sit and gather while the hostess prepares the food.
