Akurum finallydrawers

Finally Drawers

Materials: 2 AKURUM Base cabinet with 3 drawers, white, Ädel white; 4 11″ EKBY BJARNUM Brackets; 1- 3′ Long square dowling; 1 Ekby Mossby 14″ stainless steel shelf (no longer available)

Description: For years I have had a frustration with my kitchen (or lack of) drawers. Well I finally did something about it. I purchased 2 IKEA Akurum 12″ drawer cabinets with Adel fronts.

I installed them per directions, except instead of Capita legs, I used 11″ Ekby Bjarnum shelf supports (I needed to clear a baseboard heater). For the countertop I reused an EKBY MOSSBY 14″ stainless steel shelf (No longer available) I was using in the same place for wall storage, minus the Bjarnum supports. Since the shelf was about and 1 1/2″ too short I made it longer with a piece of 1″ Square dowling I found at Lowes and cut down into two 14″ pieces and screwed onto the the sides- which I actually like the looks of. I attached the old shelf to the top and I have a stainless steel countertop on my new drawer unit!
