The IKEA hack kitchen combo idea from “Timbertime.”
Hey there, champ!
Are you tired of tripping over all those pots and pans cluttering up your kitchen? Well, have no fear because Timbertime’s here with a solution – a DIY kitchen island made from two IKEA dressers.
Now, before you start freaking out about your lack of handyman skills, let me tell you – this is easier than tying your shoes. First, build the body of the dressers without the drawers. We don’t need those pesky things getting in the way.
To ensure stability, screw the bodies of the dressers together and add a coated chipboard surface with edge bands. Trust me; you don’t want dirt and liquids running wild between your dressers.
Now, here’s the kicker, kid. You can order a pre-edged panel online or do it yourself for some cost savings. Just be sure to attach flat connectors to the top and bottom of the dressers for extra stability.
And listen up; this is important – never pre-drill the material when screwing in the fastening screws. And make sure those dressers are at the same height, or you’ll end up with a wonky island. Nobody wants a wonky island, trust me.
You can even add an IKEA Hack extension with a spice rack because who doesn’t love a good spice rack? And just like that, you’ve upgraded your kitchen storage game. So, what are you waiting for? Get those hands dirty and show that clutter who’s boss.
