Ikea hack: craft cabinet from Fira


Through the magic of Ikea, glue, nails, stain, and extra poplar wood in our storage shed, Damon has made us a pretty nice craft cabinet.

Ikea Craft Cabinet

A while ago we went to Atlanta’s Ikea to buy six of the Fira small storage boxes. The one configured for nine small drawers reminded Damon of an apothecary chest, so he thought he could put together several of them to put our craft supplies in.

Damon put them together, attached them into one big piece, and then added some embellishments to give it a mission look and some legs to raise it off the floor. The drawers are stained this dark stain on one side, and a natural stain on the other. We have versatility as well as function.

I think it adds a nice touch to our living room, and I love knowing exactly where to go to find my scotch tape.

  1. I love that! What a great looking piece of furniture and so practical. I would love to have so many compartments for all things crafty and office oriented.

  2. Beautiful! That’s my nephew. The little compartments are very nice.

  3. I love it. Holding down my Ikea jealously. I still can’t figure out why St Louis doesn’t have one.
