Ikea hack; make your own desk

A combination of custom pine wood and IKEA stuva/folja. The bench is perfect for sitting or reading a book and offers plenty of storage space. In addition, a nice desk with chest of drawers (also from IKEA - stuva folja). Different buttons on it, which immediately gives it a different appearance :)

How to easily make a custom desk

This was a DIY job that we did with the help of my father-in-law. I got inspiration from Pinterest, where you will find many hacks with the IKEA STUVA FOLJA. We measured and ordered the pine planks to size. Then assembled the IKEA elements and screwed the wooden planks together, and to the IKEA elements where possible. The desk is screwed to the cabinet from the inside. Practical, beautiful and fast!

Final size: What are the outside dimensions?

About 2 meters wide by 50.0cm deep
