What a great idea for an island! I have a kitchen cart as my "island" right now, but it's not ideal. I've seen the ones made from old dressers, but finding the right one hasn't happened. I'm thinking I might have to hit the local Re-store to see if I can find some components so I can assemble an island of my own. A couple of cabinets and a section of counter top, and I could be in business. I won't be able to get all fancy with outlets and a USB port, but at least it would be better than what I have now. Thanks for the inspiration!
Good luck! It's a fun adventure of a project when you're in the searching phase and since you have a decent solution now, you can take your time. Had we lived closer to our ReStores and other used building material store and I could've checked in more often, we very well may have been able to find something there.
