Dining Room Hutch

Materials: AKURUM base and wall cabinets with Liljestad dark brown drawers, doors, and cover panels. The counter surface is a PRAGEL white counter. Tools required include a jig saw, and a table or skill saw in addition to the usual IKEA recommended tools.

Description: The hutch consists of two 30″ base 2 + 2 drawer cabinets fastened together and covered with the countertop (cut to desired length), two high 30″ wall cabinets which rest on the counter and are fastened together and to the wall,and two horizontal cabinets resting on the high cabinets also fastened together and to the wall.

All cabinets have cover panels on the ends and the counter is notched to accommodate the high cabinet cover panels. A toe kick is added under the base cabinets as is normally done in a kitchen application.

    Guessing the white top may be to mimic the white marble top of a more traditional breakfront?

    I’m not a fan of the white top, but otherwise it looks awesome!

    Do you take pictures of others who have hacked! Cause I am a designer and lover of all things Ikea and what they can be, would love to show you what I have done,not sure it would constitute “hacking” but you could let me know!
