I have no woodworking experience, which probably shows, but it means that ANYONE can make this!
The finished product is 22" high and 14" wide.
Materials (for one table) with approximate pricing:
2 Fira mini chests with 3* drawers from Ikea: $15 (seen here)
4 123 Wooden legs from hardware store like Home Depot: $5 each
4 Metal top plate (to attach legs to chest) from Home Depot: $2 each
Decorative trim, assorted styles, 6-82 long: approx. $25
6 Knobs (ours were vintage, but check hardware store): $2.50 each
Wood glue, paint brushes, hardwood for base: $15
One piece of hardwood cut to the size of the bottom of the chest (which is Width: 14 "
Depth: 10 1/4 ")
You will also need (but may already have):
Hacksaw (we have a small hacksaw that cost $5)
*About the Fira chests: I bought the 5-drawer version because it was the only one available at our Ikea. I was actually looking for the 3-drawer one which would be a bit easier to work with. I decided to glue the three little drawers together - now the top drawer has built-in dividers.
Step 1: Put together the Fira chest
(The 5 drawer version of the Fira chest is shown, which is what I used)
Step 2: Attach the legs
Now you can screw the legs in (and off should you need to move it).
