I wanted to hack a simple washbasin cabinet for my sink, which has an oval bottom. This hack uses the MOLGER cart and took about 6 hours. The cost for materials and the MOLGER cart came up to around $80.
IKEA items used:
- MOLGER cart, birch (Article Number: 202.414.09)
Other materials and tools:
- Black paint
- Electric jig saw
To create this simple washbasin cabinet, you need to measure the shape of the ceramic sink.
Measure the bottom shape of the washbasin.
Measure the height of the sink.
Saw in the upper shelf from under the washbasin. (I had to cut out the hole under the sink and remove the top 4 frames).
Don’t use included castors! Use another fixed feet.
The most difficult part is to measure the shape of the bottom part. My washbasin has an oval shape, which is difficult to fit into the rectangular shape of the stand.
