Modern TV Stand from KALLAX + FROSTA

Saw the FROSTA legs at a length of 18cm.

Glue and screw the wide plywood board at the bottom of the KALLAX shelving unit.

Adjust FROSTA legs at the bottom (like at a 60° angle).

Drill 4mm holes into the plywood board and KALLAX bottom at the hole positions of the feet.

Screw the truncated FROSTA legs with supplied screws.

Put the KALLAX on the FROSTA legs.

Mount the two KALLAX doors and the half KALLAX drawer (one drawer, saw through the drawer – mount at half height).

Slope the drawer in the fence and lay the smaller board on the drawer beam.
