Garage Storage Or Killer Kitchen Island?

While roaming through the aisles of our local Costco, we happened upon this garage storage unit. It has sleek drawers that are able to hold some serious weight, padded interior liners, thick butcher block top — we had to have it! But it's not going in the garage! Although we don't officially own it yet (still saving our pennies) we fell hard for this tool storage unit — we mean, our new kitchen island! Its drawers are perfect for storage of thin kitchen items like knives and other tools, while still having deeper ones able to hold your dishes. We love knowing that after we put it through years of use it should still continue on with flying colors, or if we ever tire of it that it can be sent to the studio to hold paints and art supplies.

This isn't the first time we have made a kitchen island purchase at Costco (ironically from the same "garage" department) and after moving from a large loft space to a teeny tiny one, we had to sell our beloved table, so we were elated when we happened upon this one in our travels to find inexpensive meats and cheeses.

What do you think? Would this work in your kitchen? Why or why not? Let us know below!
