Cabinet for shoes and others

Materials: Lennart drawer unit (pic, right) – two pieces, $40.
Countertop and a thin cabinet door from the Ikea department of discount, approximately $9, screws, screwdriver

A thin door, sawing it in two parts – this will be the sidewall.
From the countertop – make the top of the drawer.

After sawing wood pieces, they are treated with sandpaper.
Finish painted with white acrylic paint with a brush.
Eco-friendly :)

General algorithm is:

We do not need Lennart mesh upper lid, remove it.

Connect two Lennart with short screws 15 mm.

add two sidewall with a screws 20 mm:

and attach all of this to the countertop with screws 25 mm.

As we can see, the operation is very simple.
