Kitchen island construction

putting together Mainstays kitchen island with Lucy

We liked our first Mainstays kitchen island so much we decided to get another one.

Anna said it was easy to put together, and the fact that it comes in a large box made it easy to haul back here on the ATV.

The first one cost about a hundred dollars last year, but this one went up to 110.

I followed your link to find a $300 plus 80 S&H cost for me. How did you get one for $110?

Good looking piece of equipment!!

Tom --- Mark found it at Walmart, I'm ashamed to say. It's not quite as classy as it looks --- the back walls are thick cardboard, I think, or maybe very thin plywood. But it has worked well with our limited kitchen space, and the wheels are handy since it lets us roll it around to change things as needed. It takes about an hour of very simple assembly to put it together.
