andrew’s tv bench turned floating desk
andrew sent me two amazing hacks which i can’t wait to share with you. the first is this gorgeous floating desk, hacked from the ikea lack tv unit. when i first saw it i was amazed at how this…
… turned into this.
andrew says, “the steps to creating it were pretty simple. just basically took the two main pieces of the lack tv bench, cut them to size, attached them together and affixed them to the wall. from this angle you can really get a sense of the ‘floating effect’. “
he then cut a hole at the back of the desk for the wires, wisely hid his cpu behind the drawers and mounted another lack shelf on the wall to complete the look.
it all comes together beautifully. simple and sleek.
while i don’t recommend hacking up a new piece of lack tv bench (because you could just easily get 2 pieces of mdf to do the same), i love the idea of creatively re-purposing your old ikea furniture.

come back tomorrow for andrew’s hemnes banquette hack.
