Description: The IKEA Bedside-Table-Cabinet. Amazing in itself, but somewhat lacking functionality when darkness falls.

What we do is take the IKEA JANSJÖ worklamp, and combine it with the FÖRHÖJA wall cabinet to create the amazing Bedside-Table-Cabinet-Lamp.

1) Remove lamp from packaging
2) Measure out where to drill holes
3) Drill holes (this means using a 5mm drill bit, and widening the hole enough to get a snug fit – a 6mm drill bit made the hole too big, so beware!)
4) Insert lamp
5) Insert screws
6) Plug in lamp, and enjoy!
