Cabinets & Sideboards

Published on August 21st, 2012 | by Jules Yap


JOSEF Sideboard


Materials: Josef (3x), wooden board

Description: Varde and Stenstorp were to deep (+ no front).

So we took 3 JOSEF Lockers and went straight to the carpenter for a wooden board. A few screws a holding the units together. So simple!

Depth only 35cm, makes a perfect kitchen sideboard!

    Hi, I live in USA and i happened to buy josef from As-Is department at ikea store near my house. They did not come with connectors though. I wondered if i could buy all of your connectors. I assumed that you did not use them. Thank you so much :)

    I wish you could do some hacks to the UPVC structures at Ikea. UPVC is tough to work with.

    Alternatively, as we did it, one might have used the faktum wall cabinets (35 cm deep, 70 or 92 in heigth) on either Capita legs or wall-mounted. Front? Whatever door style you like. And on we go with your wooden top. :-)
