Ok, so we’ve all had a bad experience trying to put together IKEA furniture, BUT, it sure beats the effort of building your own furniture from scratch or spending a fortune on something fancy you can buy at a furniture store. Van Lab’s DIY kits are similar — you don’t have to go through all the trouble of a DIY van build, OR spend tons of money on a professional to do it for you.

The birch pieces come to you — pre-cut — with instructions. All you need are a couple of power drills to put it all together, and it could be done in about 3 hours (but let’s be honest, probably a full day with a bit of cursing trying to find the right piece). They even have an option that includes electrical wiring so you can have a luxury battery for charging phones and laptops.

Right now they have kits for three van models — the Nissan NV 200; Chevy City Express; and the Ford Transit LWB — but are working on additional kits for other popular vans. Take a look at the pictures below, and get details on their website here.
