Do you want to build a DIY storage shelf on a budget? Have you ever needed more counter space? I’ll share how to build a kitchen island and storage shelf for your home, and show how many ways you can use it.
Here are the materials needed to build a DIY storage shelf and kitchen island.
To start you’ll need 3 Parson’s End Tables and I purchased mine at Walmart. They are usually $10 each, but I ordered them online for in store pick up and I got a discount!
How do you make a simple kitchen island?
Here are the instructions to build a small kitchen island cart.
I put 2 of the tables together. It was really easy – just screw in the legs.
For the third table, I drilled the holes just a little bigger so I could fit rolling wheels in them.
I had these wheels on hand, but they sell them at Dollar Tree. If you don’t want to put wheels on it, or you are intimidated by power tools, you could attach floor sliders onto the bottom instead.
Use some E6000 or glue of your choice and put on the bottom of the legs on 2 of your tables.
Stack your tables on top of the table top with wheels.
Add dishes, cookbooks, whatever you want to use the added space for. On top use it as a cutting board or service tray.
The kitchen island is great if you don’t have a lot of counter space.

Add storage baskets to the shelves…
Use it as a decorative storage shelf to hold plants, books, decor, and I added a basket underneath to hold blankets.
Use it in your bathroom as a storage shelf to hold towels, toilet paper, tissue, wash clothes, decor, and underneath I added a trashcan.
