oak stained sideboard





happy new year!

here’s a nice one, spotted on curbly to kick off 2007. a pair of akurum kitchen wall cabinets turned into an elegant sideboard. urbanmark wrapped two 30″ ikea akurum wall cabinets in oak plywood cut at home depot and stained them dark brown. the cabinets are hung from the wall using the akurum suspension rail.

“i assembled the cabinets, hung them and then installed the doors (avsikt frosted doors). the only tricky part about that was that the doors normally install with the hinges on the bottom and lift up. for this installation you need to drill new holes and install the hinges on the bottom so the doors fold down. once that was complete i took the measurements to completely cover the white cabinet with 3/4 inch oak plywood that i had cut at home depot. i veneered the cut edges, stained it with a water-based custom dark brown stain, applied a couple coats of polyurethane and then glued the plywood on top and around the installed cabinets. i was quite happy with the results so i ended up making another set to hang above my desk in my office!”

great idea when you’re bored with ikea’s range of whites, birch and beech. also check out urbanmark’s other hack, using the same idea to cover a pax wardrobe.

and if you’re wondering, the painting is by toronto artist christian mcleod.
