From Lennart to bedside table

Materials: Lennart drawer unit, Sätta knobs (those bolts are too long, so you need shorter ones or something to put between), fabric, Rationell shelf, screwdriver, glue, stapling gun, screws

Description: I needed two bedside tables, but didn’t have that much money. So I decided to make something out of Lennart. I stapled fabric to rationell shelf and then screwed it to the top of the lennart. Then I glued other fabric to the fronts of the Lennart’s boxes. The sätta knobs are just for decoration :)
