This ranks high on our list of successful Ikeahacks--maybe because it was featured in Living Etc. and styled beautifully? Or maybe because we happened to buy that exact kitchen island at Ikea and it's pretty cool to see it in a new way? Regardless, we're loving this mix of high and low to create a very effective bathroom solution.
The wood base is painted with a few coats of white, and the boxes on the lower shelf were actually pine boxes painted in a matching white bought at a crafts store. Ikea doesn't make this exact kitchen island anymore, but they do have a kitchen cart that is similar called Förhöja.
