IVAR, all grown up
This Ikea Ivar cabinet spent some time as a plain Ivar cabinet with white paint and two knobs. It was finally time to give it a makeover and take it to the next level.
- 1″ x 2″ boards
- 2″ x 2″ boards
- 1 x 3″ boards
- Screen molding
- 3/4″ plywood
- Cabinet Pulls
- Gold spray paint
I started by building the frame out of 2×2 boards and painted it gold.
I attached the screen molding on the front to create the faux drawers and door. I also attached some boards on the sides to give the cabinet a finished look.
I attached a top made of plywood and 1 x 3 boards.
The entire piece got my favorite red paint and pretty gold knobs.
I love how it turned out and it fits right in with my red color scheme in the dining and kitchen!
