This well-proportioned island has an ample work surface, great for folding clothes in the laundry room or doing crafts and odd jobs in the workshop. The good news? You don’t need to be an experienced carpenter. The island consists of two storage modules and a ceramic tile counter that are easy to assemble and create. Novice do-it-yourselfers with basic tools and good materials will be able to complete the work in a few days, allowing time for the adhesive and grout to dry.
