Rast Nightstand Mobile Kitchen Storage
Materials: Two Rast Nightstands, 4 wheels, 4 metal plates, lots of screws
Description: We needed some extra storage in the kitchen and we needed to keep it in space under the table that would be otherwise out of reach.
I didn’t find anything that would suit our needs. The carts were either too tall to go under the table or to narrow to fully utilize the extra space. Also I didn’t want anything made out of plastic.
Here is our solution. I bought two RAST nightstands (very cheap and made out of nice wood). I joined them together with metal plates. Then I have attached four wheels to top of the nightstands and I turned everything upside down.
It wasn’t my initial plan, but I had to remove one shelf. The unit would be too deep otherwise and it would be hard to reach items in the back.
Now we have a mobile storage that nicely fits under Bjorkudden table, matches its nice wood pattern and has two level shelves for items of different height.
