Description by Rob

Because with us, the toys of our 3 children were nowhere to be found in our house, so we decided to make a beautiful piece of furniture for this.

How I made this project

The furniture is a combination of ready-made and -ready cabinets from Ikea and self-made parts that we ordered from We used 2 TROFAST cabinets from IKEA as a base. Since these cabinets are made of pine, we have made a pine top on them. I rounded all the corners and edges with my sander. I placed an IVAR cabinet on top of the top. This is placed on an elevation of slats so that the doors do not scrape over the top. As a finishing touch, I made a skirting board on top of the top. I coated the entire top twice with clear varnish.

Dimensions of my DIY project

3000mm long, 460mm deep and the top is about 550mm high.
