A DIY Kitchen Island Made from Base Cabinets

Does your kitchen need some updating?

Ours certainly did! The problem was - we didn't have the funds for a brand new kitchen

So we put on our DIY hats and made some updates - including a new kitchen island made from base cabinets

And we love our simple DIY kitchen makeover from putting in a new tile floor, building the kitchen island to painting our existing cabinets

We started this makeover with these two used vanitites made from base cabinets

One for the island, the second would sit  on the back wall of our kitchen for extra storage

For the island we added baseboard, painted it, changed the hardware and eventully added the butcher block top

We also added paneling to the back

We extended the island by building a small wine rack

Getting creative with inexpensive base cabinets is a great way to save money
