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

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
That is a great idea, thanks for sharing!
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 :)
Great stuff - thank you. Please let me know your full name if you'd like a credit on the site.
