New Kitchen Island made of slats


Materials: 2 x Sultan LADE, Numerär worktop

I’m really proud of myself because I did this hack with only a little bit of help from my husband.

The first picture shows a part of my kitchen before my hack . I was sure that a new kitchen cabinet had to be there instead of the old racks and the curtain. So I took a Sultan LADE slatted frame and after removing the ribbon I painted the slats in white and red colour (red for the frame and white for the boards). I was very lucky because the slats with 70 cm fitted perfectly and I only have to cut 6 slats (my husband did it for me). When the colour was dry I built my new kitchen cabinet with many screws. Now I still needed a worktop and I remembered that we storaged the piece which we cut-out for the cooker. At that time we bought a Numerär worktop and luckily it fitted perfectly after my husband cut the edges a bit (I sanded it afterwards and used Behandla oil).


The drawers are made from the rest of the LADE pieces which were cut for the shelves before, the bottoms are from old Billy backs. I love the vintage style and so I made it on the drawer fronts (they are not from Ikea, I took 2 pieces of wood which we kept from another project, just as the handles). In the end I fixed 4 castors so I can pull it out from both sides very easily.

Now I still need pretty boxes for the storage of my food processor items and every ideas from you are appreciated!
