DIY kitchen islands are not only fun to build, but will give you a sense of pride every time you stand in your kitchen!
Today we’re showcasing some of our favorite pieces from DIYers across the web.
From pallet wood upcycled projects to sleek concrete ideas. You’ll find a kitchen island to build for yourself here.
If you’re just a little bit handy around the house, you can probably pull off one of these nice DIY kitchen islands. First, you’ll need to decide why you need one.
Do you need to store things? Build a shelf.
Do you want to chop things on it? Build in a proper food-safe cutting board area.
Do you want it just for extra space? Maybe a simple DIY kitchen island is what you’ll want to build. Four legs and a top could do the trick!
Kitchen Island Designs You’ll Love
Whatever you’d building, check out these DIY kitchen island ideas for inspiration!
Pallet Wood Kitchen Island
Becky has some mad skills. She created this kitchen island using pallet wood.
But, what I really love about this island is that she used croquet mallets to fill the voids and for a towel bar!
She then goes above and beyond with a bottle opener, hook, and a sweet rack where she’s storing wine bottles and a cookbook.
The rack is also made from a pallet! I love everything about this kitchen island.

Repurpose A Dresser Into A Kitchen Island
Another dresser repurposed! This one obviously has a new top attached to it, but doesn’t it look so cool?

Changing Table to Kitchen Cart
I’m not sure which one I want to build yet, but I know I need to build one…soon!
I’m leaning towards the one with salvaged wood. I just need to find some wood to salvage!
If not, I suppose I can always make one with new wood. It won’t have the same appeal, but it’ll be nice nevertheless.
Which one is your favorite?

Great post! Lots of inspiration. I made a similar Island to the middle one, but I added drop leafs on either end for more surface area. It is great since I have a smaller kitchen with no room for a full sized table.
Looking forward to trying out some other projects on your site!
