Rules Change for Besta Console

 Bad news is IKEA® has changed the rules and the "Besta Combination Console" is no longer sold as a kit.
Good news is you can still purchase the parts to create it.  So we put together this guide to make it easy for you to create a beautiful console that is not only functional but also quite elegant!

Our project consists of the following Ikea® pieces 

1. You will need the IKEA Besta console frame.

Console size: 47-1/4 x 15-3/4 x 25-1/4 "

Would you like to add legs?  
This gives the Besta a graceful lift off the floor which adds shape and sophistication.

2. Four  IKEA Stubbarp legs one for each of the 4 corners of the console frame

Easy installation, just screw them on! 

Next you need doors.

3. We used 2 IKEA Lappviken doors.

Door size: 23-5/8 x 25-1/4 "
Now for the special touch.

4.  Two O'verlays panels of your choice! That fit it the Besta door size 23-5/8" x 25-1/4"
Featured below is O'verlays Harper Thick panels which are easy to paint and install. They ship white and can be a subtle accent to your new piece white on white, or with an accent color which can bring a new element to your space.

Panel size: 23.3125 x 25"
For a unique touch that says it's your design, add door knobs or pulls.  

We purchased the Baldwin Door Knockers used in the above image from Handlesets.com. Other good resources for pulls are  Myknobs.com and Build.com
