Built-in Pax wardrobe and nightstand

Materials: 2 PAX wardrobe frames (100 cm width), 1 PAX wardrobe frame (50 cm width) – with VIKEDAL mirror doors. The PAX frames were 236 cm high. 1 NORDLI dresser (40 cm width), 1 mdf board (40 cm width) and 1 construction timber.

Pax wardrobe

We started by installing the Pax frames and the Nordli dresser. They where placed directly on the floor and attached to the wall behind. A mdf board was cut and fitted/attached on top of the Nordli dresser (and the wall behind). The construction timber was placed on top of it all and drilled/attached with screws from below.

Some filler, wallpaper and paint made a smooth finish to the wall. Cornice were glued to the construction timber and to the roof.

The result – The Vikedal mirror doors made this small bedroom feel much larger.

Because there was not enough space for an ordinary nightstand, one of the drawers in the Nordli dresser was made into a draw-out nightstand. The “liftable” lid was made of the rest of the mdf-board.

    When did you buy the NORDLI in single width?

    Love the built in look, but only see larger (wider) ones on Ikea’s website.

    I think your “draw-out nightstand” is quite clever; well done.
