Base cabinet to island
Materials: Varde base cabinet, tile, brackets
Description: We wanted a kitchen island but they are so expensive so we headed to Ikea we found a Varde base cabinet, but it was not wide enough to sit comfortably so my husband added a board with a second piece to form a “L” shape attached the second piece to the end of the cabinet low enough to allow for the height of the tile then he tiled and grouted the top of the board and added three shelf brackets for support. The cost was way cheaper than any kitchen island.
