IKEA MOLGER FLAT PACK HACK

Introduction: IKEA MOLGER FLAT PACK HACK

About: Bartholomew, Call me Barth or Homie. Born and raised in Croydon, London. I've been an IKEA assembly "artist" ever since the first time I came across ready-to-assemble furniture and flat pack home inventory....

Flat pack furniture hacks are a huge passion of mine and it's been so ever since my first Billy book case.

The assembly of this particular molger storage tool hack does not require high montage skills, neither specific tools. After setting up the ready-to-assemble all we have is basic decorative work, which pretty much leaves the flat pack assembly as the "difficult part".

Step 1: This Is How the Raw MOLGER Default Looks Like

Step 2: Prepare It for Disassembly

Step 3: Gently Dismantle the Joints

Step 4: You Would Not Want to Break Anything, Would You

In case you do happen to damage your MOLGER...

Step 5: Your MOLGER Might Need Some Extra Glue

Just make sure you the parts are assembled tightly. The process of putting together a number of parts build back a simple storage unite requires your focus.

Step 6: Re-assemble That Flat Pack

Nails are always welcome when it comes down to IKEA furniture.

Step 7: Make Sure Your Storage Tool Is Solid and Stable

Step 8: Time for Paint!

Step 9: Take Your Time for Details

Step 10: Paint the Lid Properly

Step 11: Another Screenshot While Painted

Step 12: You Could Use Any Colours You Wish

Step 13: How Red and Black Fit

Step 14: Montage Lights.

Choose your colours wisely!
The inner colour has a crucial role.

Step 15: How a Fantastic Furniture Assembly and Hack Look Like!

    Looks really good. Great way to give new life to a relatively old piece of furniture. How long did the whole process take btw?

    For what I can tell, it should all come down to no more than 2, 3 hrs tops. Painting furniture takes the most IMO

    I am stuck between step 4 and step 5... soon it seems I will need to go for more supplies :)

    Wood is tricky. In my case I pushed it a bit too hard, but have in mind that glue is always an option ;D
