Make a small, mobile kitchen island using an Expedit shelving unit, Lagan countertop and Branas baskets, all from Ikea. First assemble the bookshelf, attach castors to the bottom panel, cut the countertop to the desired dimensions, secure it with brackets into an L-shape and then cut an opening above one of the baskets for the garbage bin.{found on ikeahakers}.

You can also use the Malm bedroom dresser as part of the island. First build the base( with an Ikea base cabinet you can find as is) and then attach the dresser. After that, move to the sides and top. Use wood countertops and fasten them in place with brackets. For the face of the island you can simply use plywood.{found on site}.

Billy Bookshelves.

If you prefer open shelves in the kitchen, then get yourself a Billy bookcase and a Numerar countertop and make a kitchen island. Cover the back of the bookcase with beadboard and attach the countertop. You can also install hooks on the sides for extra storage.{found on ikeahackers}.
