Description by Paul and Veronieke

We have made a custom wall unit with MDF planks to to give more atmosphere to the living room, by adding a robust 'type box' in which we can place personal items, such as photo frames, art, etc.

How I made this project

  • Step 1: get inspiration on the internet in terms of wall furniture models/ type boxes
  • Step 2: make various sketches, with regard to the compartment division, to determine what is good in terms of taste and also easily achievable
  • Step 3: take concrete dimensions and make a final drawing to determine the required material (MDF planks)
  • Step 4: opmaatzagen.nl has all the planks cut very efficiently from one large MDF (blank 50 mm) plate
  • Step 5: primed the MDF planks
  • Step 6: painted the planks in the same color as the wall
  • Step 7: using a test plank, remove the skirting board from the standing planks are cut with a jigsaw, so that they can be placed tightly against the wall (with some extra notch for cables)
  • Step 8: measure and pre-drill the screw holes in the standing parts, with which the planks will be attached /li>
  • Step 9: assembly of the furniture and placement in parts (due to size and weight) Step 10: mounting on the wall using some corner pieces at the top to prevent it from falling over
