Materials: Materials needed: 2 Ikea RAST 3-drawer chests ($34.99) Wood for shelves, wine rack, side supports, and top shelf (I used 11 & ¾" x 12" boards for the in between shelves, 12" x 12" squares for the side supports, and a 6’x1’ board for the top) Wine rack- 36"x1" dowel rods cut down to the length you need (I used 11 ¾" x 11 3/4" but measure twice, cut once) Lots and lots of screws L-shaped shelf brackets Straight brackets for side supports Wood glue Wood putty Drawer handles Stain (large container) Polyurethane (I used a spray) Tools needed: Screwdriver Drill Hammer Paintbrush and stain sponge/cloth Tape Measure Level Saw (optional- I had the guys at Lowes cut mine for me)
Description: First things first, I made a pilgrimage to Ikea in Cincinnati where I spent tons and tons of money on things I absolutely totally needed. Like a wok. Which I have yet to use. I picked up two of the Rast dressers, which are $34.99 a piece, but incredibly basic and super ugly. Especially those wood knobs. Yikes. A follow up trip to Lowes netted me the remainder of my supplies. All in all, I spent around $150 on this project.
