This is my kitchen island. I thought at one time I would just buy one, not. Then I thought of several different ways I could make one, if I had this and if I had that, didn’t happen either.
Love, love, love this little chest, but my house is small and after I emptied the chest out, I was just staring at it wondering if I could possibly give it up, couldn’t do it. So…………………….
I removed the hinges and hardware from the top backside and top front side.
The top lifted off. I turned the chest on its side, put the top on what was once the side, secured the top to the side and bingo, I had my kitchen island. Took me about 20 minutes and it was free. Yay!
Just put a basket I had made with paint sticks and paper rope in the opening, filled it full of eucalyptus and I was just so, so happy!
