store 110 dvds in your tv bench

here’s one from frau kollegin of vienna, hacking an old ikea tv bench to add in a drawer compartment. anyone knows the name of this discontinued tv bench?

the original bench

“i created a new tv bench – out of my old one. unfortunately ikea doesn’t sell the original any more (we bought it about 7 years ago).



so, what did i do? i increased the height of the bench, so that the drawer i built can hold up to 110 dvds. than i assembled a few slats and boards, added trimmings and painted it.” link.

  1. This looks great! You did a good job.

    Closest thing IKEA currently sells is Liatorp, but the TV bench in that line isn’t as nice or well-appointed.

    Yes it’s Granas, I have the same bench… :-)

  4. Ah, thank you so much! My rented apartment came with bedroom furniture in a similar style to this, I was convinced it was from Ikea but couldn’t find anything resembling it! Now I know.. pity they don’t still make it, I want another clothes rail for it!

    I believe that’s a Granas.
