Description: We have been looking for a nice kitchen trolley for a long time, but they all basically were way too expensive!
We knew what kind of trolley we liked and when I came across the Stenstorp Trolley from Ikea I thought it was perfect for some simple adjustments.
The idea was to keep the trolley as is but add stainless steel ‘safety’ rails (so our stuff doesn’t fall out) and a drawer.
When starting the drawings for cutting the wood and assembly I thought it might be a nice idea to remove the top front wooden panel and create 2 drawers instead of 1. (This would be small, but perfect to store a kitchen scale, potholders etc.)
I looked at one of the Ikea drawers I have in a cupboard and used that design for my custom sized drawers.
Luckily all the drawings panned out and the entire construction fitted on the first go.
