The tiny kitchen island

Materials: Expedit 2×2, Vika Amon, Expedit drawers and legs from other shop

Description: I have a small area in my kitchen/livingroom so I decided to do this by using Ikea stuff which are cheap and easy to work with. Those legs I bought somewhere else. I’m very satisfied :)

    I live in a rented flat which has so little kitchen worktop space I’m currently using a Malm bedside cabinet as a counter for my microwave :( This has inspired me! It’s so cheap and I can easily make it!! Thank you! Cameron

    It looks great! I did something similar & used Capita legs. I might add some sort of lighting now that I have seen it on yours.

    Job well done.
