HEMNES chest with plywood drawer fronts
I really like plywood and with a big piece, I did more than one IKEA hacks!
That is the way it seems to be with plywood drawer fronts.
IKEA pieces used:
- HEMNES chest of eight drawers (I were given mine 2d hand)
DIY plywood drawer fronts:
I got rid of the handles and the highest 4 entrance drawer plates.
On the ironmongery store, I were given them to chop the 4 items of plywood to the precise dimension. Then, I sandpapered and varnished the plywood (two times).
My brother-in-law helped me with drilling the precise dimension holes in keeping with the unique drawer entrance. He additionally made holes for the handles. (I gave him one drawer entrance to make use of as a template).
He urged me to not course the groove the place the ground of the drawer suits within the drawer entrance. Somewhat, to chop a small piece of the entrance of the drawer, put the entrance in combination and screws a small nook profile at the backside so it remains completely mounted.
KNARREVIK with plywood topper
We nonetheless had some plywood left over, and because we simply moved into a brand new house, we didn’t need to make investments that a lot in each room already.
However I did need to have a couple of matching nightstands for an extremely low worth. The most affordable costs nightstands regularly are manufactured from steel. I believed the sound of steel may just wake someone up (in the event you put your telephone/watch to your nightstand for instance).
So, I were given two KNARREVIK nightstands, glued a work of plywood (sandpapered and varnished two times) on most sensible of the cabinets.
And that’s it.
