Make Freden Sink Cabinet Sinkless

Materials: Freden sink cabinet, wood planks of choice

Description: I found a stack of Freden sink cabinets at Ikea for incredibly cheap, and I thought it would make a nice corner cabinet to put mail, keys, family photos, etc… on, as well storing a few things inside.

First, assemble the cabinet as per instructions. The cabinet comes with adjustable feet and stainless steel feet covers that I chose to keep aside for a later project.

After assembling, cut your desired wood top to size and paint if you’d like. Screw some wood blocks (or shelf pegs) at the correct depth to set the wood top inside the cabinet sides.

Drop the wood in and enjoy your little corner cabinet!

    I think this can be also use as book shelves but not the big books. I have collection of pocketbook which I think is better to place in a small cabinet like this one. Nice design. That’s a simple yet great idea of yours.

    You could use a hinge (piano for example) to make it easy to open and close the top.
    nice, simple idea, though. Thanks.
