Materials: cover panel, plywoods or cabinet material, IKEA hinges, drawer track and handles

Description: The problem with this space was it was too small for a regular sized IKEA lower cabinet. She really wanted the space for baking sheets and bag storage. We had to custom build two side cabinets with door fronts made from the cover panels that are the same brown stain as the rest of her IKEA kitchen. We ended up using one side hinge drawer from another IKEA cabinet as a track that sat underneath the pullout instead of on the side like IKEA cabinets.

The cover panel was cut down to size and stained on the side that was cut. The cover panel/door was routed to fit the IKEA hinges.

We had the same IKEA handles added to the drawer. Now we have to 7″ width drawers that look exactly like IKEA cabinets on the outside.
