If you're boring like me and planning some home improvements this weekend (I'm doing some painting - woot!), you might want to check out this awesome Instructables tutorial. The supplies list has a couple of IKEA materials on it, but if you don't live near one, it looks like you could easily substitute them with items from a regular hardware store. If you don't have the required miter saw or drill press on hand, most Home Depots have a tool rental service that anyone can take advantage of.
If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
