Turn A Desk Into A Beautiful Rolling Kitchen Island DIY

It’s time to flip your desk upside down.  This rolling island is so smart and creative.  One of the great things about this idea is that it’s prebuilt.  All you have to do is put a little of yourself into it.  The other great thing is that the island isn’t permanent.  This is a fun way to add some storage and work space into your kitchen.  Thanks to Down to Earth Style for this project.

This project was so fun to do. I refinish furniture pretty often so when I picked up this desk I had no idea what I was going to turn it into.

I have finished a few pieces of furniture in this same brand called This End Up…it’s ironic because here is what I was inspired to do.

Yes, I turned it upside down after painting it white (see how in THIS POST).

Basically – the photo above shows all the steps. Here are a few more details.
I didn’t love the style of the drawers so I bought a door threshold and cut it down into 8 1/12 inch pieces to cover the handles. (see the last photo in the collage above)
