Next center the BEKVÄM racks in the middle of the drawer, be sure to measure the distance from one side of the drawer to the other to make sure they are even. Tape the BEKVÄM shelves to the drawer, making sure to tape the seams between the BEKVÄM shelves.

Carefully flip the drawer upside down. Measuring from each side of the drawer mark a straight line the distance you had placed the row of BEKVÄM shelves.

Run a line of nails with the nail gun on the marker line. Next fill RAJTAN jars with your favorite spices (could even make for a craft drawer!). Attach the drawer front and insert the drawer, VOILA! Ready to use!

    Nice, but I don’t understand why to put the drawer upside down? don’t you just have to glue the spice racks into the drawer?
