    Hi all Thanks for the comments!

    Nicolas the size is 78 cm x 115 cm x 5 cm (W x L x D) – I was accidentally saw this board and like it, Yet didn’t know what to do with. After I hv looked up on this blog and it’s just inspired me. So I created this… U can find something similar and put together just like mine. Worst case u can sawing in the rectangle shape and use the brackets to make 2 shelves instead. :-) . (But just make sure the thickness of the board will be fit in to the bracket)

    I am in australia and hardly get a real good bargain for unscratched item. So yeah I know what u said. U r lucky thing live in the US! :-)

    Thanks again for the compliment. I have to also forward this and mine compliments to all the people who post the great ideas here.. No matter how big or how small. Its shows that u r all think outside the square and i loved yr passion!!!

    IKEA Australia always seems very miserly with their as-is section. I’ve seen furniture with major parts missing, and badly scratched – and they’re still asking for 3/4 of new price!

    Where are you, Anonymous?

    If you’re in the US, I’d except it to be cheaper than in Aus. I gather things generally are, regardless of the exchange rate.

    You got ripped off on that board. They are always priced <$10 for something like that. I think its only like $30 normally! I’ve bought similar for 2.99
