A couple of years ago I bought a STENSTORP kitchen island. Because we have little space, I wanted to put the kitchen island on wheels for more flexibility. We did the makeover this winter and it works so well!
Kerstin doesn’t like sitting on barstools and needed storage in her kitchen. So she installed shelves on the the seating side of the IKEA STENSTORP kitchen island. See the tutorial for additional shelves on the IKEA STENSTORP.
#2 Coastal makeover for the STENSTORP
Lisa loved the STENSTORP island, but there was one thing that really bugged her. Anyone walking by the kitchen could see all the junk she had crammed on the shelves. She wanted to hide the mess and make the island fit more with the coastal decor of her beach house and look more permanent and custom. Here’s her coastal kitchen island.
#3 Add the VADHOLMA rack to the STENSTORP
Daniel have had a STENSTORP kitchen island in black for years. And then when the 2019 IKEA catalog came out with the new VADHOLMA kitchen island with rack he was immediately smitten. For $100 he thought he’ll attempt to add it to his old kitchen island. And it worked fabulously. See his freestanding kitchen island with rack.
