Mini Mudroom from TARVA nightstands - IKEA Hackers Materials: Two Tarva Nightstands I got on the Ikea website and found the Tarva Nightstand. After building the nightstands, I screwed them together using scrap wood. I made a new top for the nightstands out of stained 1×3 pine boards. I then made the top unit out of 1×2′s, 1×3′s, and 1×10′s. I dressed it up with a little bead board, crown molding, and new hardware on the nightstands.
