Wickeltisch, HEMNES diaper changing table - Materials: 2x CD Rack, Ikea Hemnes I used an old “Hemnes” sideboard. I pulled the drawers out and painted the rest in white (little tricky on the side but it works. Use lots of “children safe” paint). Then I broadened the depth with two CD racks to either side. Be careful there ’cause you have to cut it up a little bit and add two new holes for the bottom. (It’s a little tricky to get the bottom shelf straight). Then drill the... http://ow.ly/2VfzsI

Flatbed Truck & Grand Prix Racer - Materials: 1/4″ plywood, IKEA Kitchen filler pieces, pine shelf cleats, screw hole plugs, trim The edged curve of the kitchen fillers provided a nice detail for the front of the flatbed truck cab. The existing width is 2 3/8″ which is ideal for the scale. The wrapped thermo-foil white provides a smooth clear finish. The other components blend in with the surface. The top and middle pieces were painted white and the under-carriage piece... http://ow.ly/2V3oRy

Materials needed: - IKEA MALM storage unit - Old leather jacket from thriftshop (can use any kind of material) - Pillow from garden seat - 4 rotating wheels Tools needed: - Tack gun - Scissors - Screwdriver & Screws Step one: Make sure the pillow is large enough to fit the top. Cut it a little bit l... http://ow.ly/2V2a9Z

Personalised presents with Ribba frames - We wanted to create special presents for our friends & family. So we bought some Ribba frames, all identically white and squared, and customised them with a theme, inspired from each person’s hobbies and interests. One has two real plants, with pots fixed to the bottom of the frame and no glass on the front (so you can water the plants!). And we even added small plastic tools on the outside. One has golf balls, cut in 2 halves, ... http://ow.ly/2UVYkX

Baaah! Baaah! Wishing you a Happy Year of the Goat! - Today is the Lunar New Year and for the Chinese, it’s huge – complete with dancing lions, red packets with money, mandarin oranges, firecrackers, 9 course dinners … and nosy aunties asking, “When are you getting married? This is the last time I am giving you a hóng bāo! (red packet)” I will be taking a day off to spend time with family and friends back in my hometown, Ipoh. To all my Chinese friends, here’s wishing y... http://ow.ly/2USiFl

Gnedby under stairs storage - I already had at home a piece of IKEA furniture (model Gnedby) used as a library. I still had to cover a gap between the fridge and the cupboard, so I decided to buy another Gnedby. I set to use only the fasteners provided in the IKEA Gnedby kit: - First of all I sawed the side boards in the sizes I needed. (At some point you will see the cut but being internal parts I let it go) - In the second part I made the holes for the lock tab; I use... http://ow.ly/2UPU4U

Lack Wall Shelf for Gaming Consoles - Got this on the opportunities section, at half price. Shuffled it around never quite finding the right place for it. Then I remembered to use it as Gaming Console Stand. Searched the web and found out it’s mostly hollow so you can pass all necessary cables, and it’s supposed to be hanged on a wall so weight wouldn’t be an issue. So here it is in my home office/play room:   Some detail of the cutting work: Around the middle it has a ... http://ow.ly/2VfgEi

From kitchen stool to sofa tables - Materials: FROSTA stool and BILLSTA table top I used two FROSTA stools and two BILLSTA table tops to make a nice set of sofa tables for the living room. 1. Take the legs off the stools. 2. Shorten the legs from one of the stools to make one of the tables lower. 3. Screw the legs on the table tops (the pre drilled holes will fit) 4. Put the stool seats on top of the tables as decoration or serving trays. The post From kitchen stool to ... http://ow.ly/2V30ie

All-Stainless Steel Monitor Stand - Materials: CAPITA legs + EKBY MOSSBY shelf 8.25″ CAPITA legs attached to an EKBY MOSSBY shelf (200.570.00). I can’t find the 8″ legs on the IKEA website, but the 6″ legs are still there (102.678.95). If I had to do it again, I’d probably use the 4″ or 6″ legs. The stand is atop a JERKER desk (200.305.67). The post All-Stainless Steel Monitor Stand appeared first on IKEA Hackers. http://ow.ly/2UW8V3

Temporary Sewing Table Solution - Here, in my sewing room, it is a busy little world. Our guest bed lives here, the computer workstation of my flatmate lives here, my Sewing machines live here – so all in all the word multifunction becomes a whole new meaning. When I am working on a sewing project, the whole flat is under attack: there simply is not enough table space for cutting or “working” in general: pinning, basing, pattern making making, blocking, measuring…. it a... http://ow.ly/2UVu6o
My sewing room is a busy. What we need is a large temporary sewing table that is set up in a moment and does not take up any space when it is not in use.

Bekant-Galant Sit/Stand Corner Desk Hack - Materials: Bekant sit stand corner desk frame, Galant Corner desk table top I noticed that the tabletop for the new BEKANT sit/stand was smaller than the GALANT (which they no longer sell anymore), so I bought a used GALANT corner desk tabletop and hacked it with the BEKANT sit/stand corner desk frame to maximize table space. Steps below: 1. Put the frame together as instructed in manual 2. Place the GALANT top down 3. Place th... http://ow.ly/2UQexp

I mounted the arms to plastic enclosure (90x56x23 mm) by using nuts and then I soldered switch wires back 3. I mounted switches to enclosure by using double side tape and cable ties 4. I screwed nail plate (120 x 40 mm) behind of enclosure (three screws) and then I screwed the nail plate to the back of ... http://ow.ly/2UPj1p
