Refurbished kitchen cart found at an estate sale for 25 cents - just needed some spray paint & sandpaper.
It's amazing how much a cart like the one in this pic will hold. Ours holds most of the pots and skillets, cannisters, food processor, immersion blender. In our small kitchen, we just roll it away from us if we need to walk past it with others in the room.
I need a similar island for my kitchen. Also notice the backsplahs behind the stove... that's the same one I'm hoping to put in our kitchen soon!
Island Storage If you don't have an island, create one. In its former life, this marble-top bureau kept clothes in order. Now, its drawers hold pots, pans, and bowls. Side panels pitch in with a paper-tower bar and large utensil hooks. The island also houses spices and other at-hand food-prep items.
