If you love this Scandi- style IKEA hack as much as we do – read on for a full step-by-step guide on how Kate created it.
You will need:
- IKEA Kallax unit, £35 at IKEA
- IKEA Kallax inserts with door, £10 each at IKEA
- IKEA Begripa handles, £5 for a set of 2 at IKEA
- Four individual Rothley Hairpin Legs – 100mm in Matt Black, £7.50 each at Ironmonergy Direct
- Woodpress White Oak Real Oak Iron-On Edging – 22mm x 7.5mm Real Oak, £12.95 per roll at Amazon.co.uk
- A wooden worktop – we’ve used one from an old desk
- Tape Measure
- Sander / Sandpaper
1. Assemble the IKEA Kallax unit and attach the hairpin legs
Kate started by building the Kallax unit according to the instructions, she then used a pencil and tape measure, to mark where the hairpin legs would sit. Once that was all marked out she attached the Rothley hairpin legs using a drill and screws to secure them in place.
2. Create the faux wood closed door storage
For the wood effect on the doors, Kate cut and ironed Woodpress White Oak Real Oak Iron-On Edging onto the two Kallax door inserts. She then attached the IKEA Begripa handles to each door.
3. Install the worktop and fill
Finally, she sanded down the worktop and attached to the top of the cabinet using strong glue before leaving it to dry.
