#2 Compact kitchen island with stainless steel top and drawers
After digging around on Etsy for what seemed like a million years, CommandoGirl still couldn’t find one that provided enough storage and was also small enough to fit into the limited space in her kitchen. So, enter the Hemnes dresser. And out came her small kitchen island with drawers.
Michelle was tired of her round dining table with chairs. For a change, she wanted something that was chic yet functional. She also wanted something that would be a space saver. That was when she took a second look at the HEMNES dresser, observed a few kitchen island ideas on different websites and got to work on a rustic kitchen island.
