The included wire baskets make it easy to store produce or frequently-used dishes and kitchen utensils where you can easily find them. Plus, they add an unrefined, country feel to an otherwise simple basic furnishing.

You can use this versatile kitchen island in at least 5 different ways.

Of course, I mentioned stylish storage above. In addition, you can use it as a food prep area in the kitchen and gain extra countertop space. Third, what about serving wine or cocktails at a party? Fourth, roll it outside by the BBQ while you are grilling. And lastly, use it as a shabby-chic display case in an entryway, hallway or living room.

Inexpensive Wood and Metal Kitchen Cart Proves to be Both Functional and Stylish…

In addition to kitchen storage and food prep, you can use this movable trolley as a wine cart or drink table at parties. For example, use the tabletop as a serving area, while the shelves underneath can store extra glasses, wine bottles, napkins and more.

In other words, you can dress this mobile cart up for fancy parties or use it outside when grilling outside on the patio.

At only 17 inches deep, this compact utility cart can fit snugly out-of-the-way against a wall. Yet, at almost 4 feet long, you get plenty of usable tabletop area to make this portable unit very functional.

The open shelving design makes it ideal for displaying decorative items. Plus, this industrial kitchen island cart looks classy enough to display home decor in a dining room or entryway.

Note: Some people ask if they can adjust the shelves. The shelving itself is not adjustable, however, you can move the wire baskets if you want.

In addition, you can remove the rolling casters and turn this cart into a fixed shelving unit. Keep in mind though, that removing the wheels will shorten the height of unit by about 3 inches.
