IKEA KALLAX Flat File Cabinet Hack

It’s been a few months since I made the IKEA KALLAX Flat File Cabinet Hack, but we finally got it all figured out and the blog post/tutorial can now be found online.

I love to work with Remodelaholic, they’ve put so much work into my video to make it look presentable and fun. I originally had send them snippets of my building steps and I wish I would’ve had time to give you guys a bit more step by step video material.

This cabinet has given me so much extra storage, you can use it for many different storage options. To store your scrapbooking, with space for your cutter, glue machine, laminator in the bottom drawer.
