Introduction: IKEA MOLGER FLAT PACK HACK

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".

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
