From the blogger: "After I started planning out on how I wanted to build my kitchen island it dawned on me that I already had the perfect piece to upcycle! My great grandpa's old radio stand was left out in a shed somewhere for literally decades and had me perplexed for several years before finally finding a job for it here. It was very pretty and I loved all of its details but it just wasn't meant to sit against a wall, it needed a place you could see (and use) every angle! I added castors and painted it up and it came together really quickly! Now I have storage for all of my recipe books and a place to sit!"

Tried this craft? What did you think?

I love the red color of this converted radio cabinet. I have mismatched end tables and bed stand I bout at flea markets of the years that might lend itself to this project. I could see adding a spring tension or small curtain rood with curtains to cover the storage area if you wanted that hidden. I love how another shelf area was added at the bottom for even extra storage! Very clever, beautiful and practical, while being a one of a kind addition to your home decor....form and function at its best!

Should be 'I bought' at flea markets.... Goofy auto correct! )

I always seem to need more storage and counter space in the kitchen, so this is definitely on my to-do list!

This is so clever! You can roll it into the kitchen when you need to look through a cookbook, and you can put it in the corner when it's not in use.

So appreciate you guys publishing my kitchen island, we're still really happy with it over a year later and it remains the spot we hag out at the most.
