how to submit your ikea hack

after days sweating over an ikea hack, you deserve your moment of glory here.

just write me at ikeahacker[at]gmail[dot]com

in your mail, you should include the following info:
1. a short description of the hack
2. the link to the hack (if any)
3. attach photos or the link (videos are welcome too)
4. your name and site link (if you want to be credited)

the only rule is that the hack must involve at least an ikea item, however it is used. easy. peasy.

if you didn’t hack it but came across an interesting one, you can also get in the game. i’ll even credit you for your find.

update! upload your ikea hack instructables
you can also now submit your hack via instructables. just create an instructable on the ikea hacks group and it will be published on the projects page instantly. (please do not email me if you’ve uploaded it to the group to avoid duplicates.)

so turn your allen keys. i’ll be waiting to hear from you.

one happy hacker,

    Hi there!

    I want to introduce my last IKEA hacking project, entirely dedicated to Erasmus Students. It’s called E-Kit 2.0 and you can get more information at the official webpage (http://erasmuskit.weebly.com).

    You can download the instruction manuals for free! Help me to expand the hacking catalogue! :)

    Cheers, Alex (I’ve already been published here on ikeahackers here > search “sustainable heaviness of hacking ikea”)

    Your blog is great but as Tabitha said “You should create a “Featured on” button for people to put on their blogs if their idea is posted on ikeahacker”

    I have two four-drawer Antonius frames with the white plastic tubs. How do I keep the plastic tubs from slipping out of the tracks of the frames. As soon as I fill a tub with clothing it slips out of the track…..

    Any suggestions?

    How can I ask for a project? I hope someone can help me with a solution. I have four Guitar Hero guitars. I want to make something to put them on. I thought this would be the best place to find something!
