Kallax Kitchen Island Hack
What You’ll Need: A Kallax unit, castors, inserts, Lamplig chopping boards
Estimated Cost: $95*
Kitchen islands are highly desirable for their functional and aesthetic benefits. However, building one can be an expensive venture, unless one uses creative solutions. UK-based blogger Jen Lou Meredith found an affordable way to create a small island by repurposing a Kallax unit and two Lamplig chopping boards as a wooden countertop. With a cost of around $90, this DIY project is significantly cheaper than purchasing a pre-made island from sites like eBay.
