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.

Materials needed:

  • 1″ x 2″ boards
  • 2″ x 2″ boards
  • 1 x 3″ boards
  • Screen molding
  • 3/4″ plywood
  • Paint
  • 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.

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!
