THIS IS MY ISLAND I MADE FROM AN OLD DRESSER($10) , LEFTOVER TABLE LEAVES, WAINSCOTTING,AND MOLDING.  I LEFT THE TWO TOP DRAWERS OUT FOR LARGE PANS AND COOKIE SHEET STORAGE.   HUNG AN OLD CHAIR TOP ON THE SIDE TO HANG UTENSILS.  EVERYONE USES THIS MORE THAN OUR TABLE!

Welcome to the JunkMarket and looking forward to more posts from you!
