FAKTUM turns into handsome 7-drawer oak chest

oak chest

Materials: Faktum, Rationel

This is my IKEA Hack. IKEA was selling at a very low price Faktum and Rationel old kitchen system.

I bought one top cabinet 92 x 80 (1 euro, yes it’s true it’s not a mistake) and 7 drawers (5 euro each) to fit in, and then I started to turn it into an oak chest.

I cover the top cabinet with oak.


I installed the drawers without the front and created the fronts with oak. I put in pull handles (from this ebay seller).


The entire project could be found on my blog.

The total project cost me around 200 euro
