Whether you're building a Richard Avedon-inspired bed
or aspiring for the simplicity of Donald Judd
, IKEA's IVAR components are great DIY basics that are simple and inexpensive. We've posted the IVAR Pine Box from IKEA
, but now they've added a cheap, 3-drawer chest...
The solid pine chest (rear panel and drawer bottoms are particle board) is untreated wood and "can be cut, screwed into and drilled according to need & painted, stained, waxed or oil-treated." Measuring 31.5" wide, 22.5" tall and a little over 19.5" deep, the IVAR 3-drawer Chest is only $125 from IKEA.
We can imagine a whole bunch of these lined up against a wall for cheap storage and seating!
