IKEA hack: Transforming HEMNES chest of drawers into a bathroom cabinet
- HEMNES Chest of drawers with 2 drawers
- Table electric saw
We tried everything at home, but under our little sink we couldn't find a piece of furniture the right size with the right look. For this reason we decided to go with a simple IKEA hack. We bought the HEMNES chest of drawers and placed in the bathroom with appropriate changes.
Step 1: Our bathroom
This was a simple IKEA bedside table but another one could do. We needed a storage unit to take advantage of the space under our sink and this solution was perfect.
Step 2: The sink
The sink had this shape so before mounting everything we took measurements. Using a marker we marked the shape that the top panel had to have. If you don't have an electric saw, it is possible to have a carpenter cut in the area at a low price.
Step 3: After cutting
Thanks to some accurate measuring it fits perfectly
Step 4: Personalization
We made a small personalization. Here are some more Mediterranean style knobs.
Step 5: Result
For a great low price we got a perfect piece of furniture for our needs.
