Materials: STUVA storage combination, mdf, pine trim
Description: A neighbor showed me this site when I was looking to build a custom built in wardrobe for my daughter. I am glad he did. What a time saver using the IKEA STUVA storage system was!
I started by building a base out of 2x4 lumber, placed the STUVA systems on the 2x4's and added a custom storage area on top of the storage units that was made out of MDF.
After that, I put trim around all of it to match the existing trim in the house. Holes were drilled into the sides of the STUVA units for the adjustable shelving. An oak desk top between them finished off the project.
