Wall cabinets on the floor? [member edit]




In this one I’m remodelling my home office using Ikea Metod wall cabinets as base units, and as well as explaining why, I take you on a detailed tour of the whole process, including making and levelling plinths, #scribing a worktop, making #doors and shelves, and some top tips for painting too!


No, I’m not turning into an #IkeaHack channel, but sometime you need to take the path of least resistance to get things done. Enjoy!

Hey Peter, every video of yours tells a story and this one is “sometimes it’s better to take the easy road” if life is impacting time and finance. Not a bad maxim I think when the end result is so brilliant despite a paint run😂👍

Thanks David! I thought it also went to show that the actual cabinetry is such a small part of the overall job, and of course, once it's full of my stuff and behind doors, you don't really see them at all! 😂

In the middle of the shelves, is that a circa 1988 cell phone?!?! Complete with shoulder strap?

Hi Peter, it doesn’t look like you’ve added the tools from this video to your 10minuteamazon store yet? I was looking for the ovolo door pull bit in particular for a future project

Cheers

Scribing in kitchen cabinets was how I first found your YT channel! Tagged along ever since. Smart looking base units.
