IKEA hack: spice rack from bedside table [Jan. 23rd, 2008|06:09 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I love hacking IKEA. I did it once already, and I've got Ikea Hacker in my google reader.

The problem: a deep counter top, with unusable space at the rear which becomes crowded with stuff


The Solution: Take a Rast bedside table and chop it in half.


I had to shorten the shelves of one of the halves, as I planned to use the space in between the two halves.


The Finished Product. Those are IKEA spice racks that we brought down with us from Canada. I can't find them on the IKEA website.


Another angle.

And filled with stuff!

What a perfect way to make more room on the kitchen counters! Quite ingenious. I also love the under-counter lighting you've put in. I so need both of these great additions to my kitchen. Wanna come help? lol

Thanks!

I have a bit of a lighting fetish actually - and I'm excessively neat with cabling :) http://www.infinitylimited.net/2007/lighting/?IMG_1511.JPG

Hiya! Not sure if you got my message (I used that lj messaging system, which often gets missed) so I was just wondering if you'd mind me using one or two of your images for an article I'm writing. It would be appearing on a UK-based website which is running a series of blogs on home improvement.

It would be a perfect illustration for a point about space-saving I'm trying to make :)

thanks again
Abi
