DIY Kitchen Island

It’s amazing how versatile an $8 Ikea lack table can be.
I spotted Kyle Freeman’s DIY kitchen island on Apartment Therapy last year and I still think about how clever he is.
He used extra strong, double-sided foam adhesive squares to attach the Ikea lack tables together. Once the heavy maple butcher block was placed on top, the weight “cemented” the adhesive squares in place. We used the same foam squares to attach the wood top to the Ikea table.

He bought his butcher block here but you can find these at most kitchen or hardware stores.
