Two levels kitchen island with Varde cabinet


We recently moved into a big house (compared to our previous small apartment) and I wanted to make the most of my old Varde cabinet (the one with 2 drawers and 2 doors).
We needed something for our quick meals and a kid friendly eating zone.


We bought a countertop at our regular hardware store, had it cut in two in order to create an angle around one of the Varde leg (tricky part ! my husband made a sketch for the store, and had to plane it down some more). We then fixed some legs to it and finally attached it to the wooden legs of the cabinet.
We are very happy with the result, and it’s easy to use on a daily basis with the kids.
