Wait, is that an island made from an old dresser…..? You bet it is! I saw this on Etsy and was super bummed when I realized that is had already sold for just $379.00. But on the bright side, something like this won’t be too hard to make. Give an old dresser a new paint job, a stained top, and some new knobs and you have your very own kitchen island.

This right here is one of my favorite ideas yet! This is something that could very easily be made from one of those junky dressers with great bones you find at a yard sale or flea market. All you need for this is some paint, 4 wicker baskets, and some name tags and you suddenly have a cute yet organized place to keep all of your kids art projects and school papers!
