Bedroom divider

Funky Pax room divider

Materials: Pax

Description: I’m glad to show you my ikea hack! Mine it’s a 42sqm room that I had to divide into a day and night zone without building any wall!

I decided to buy a huge Pax wardrobe and put it in the center of my room! I assembled a Pax component with a 90degrees rotation and left it without door: now it’s my bookshelf!

Then I bought an Ikea cloth to cover the wardrobe back and my old grandparents wooden bedhead.

    Did you do anything special to keep it stable? I’d like to try this, but I’m worried it would tip over…

    This is just WAY too cute.The way the fabric of the couches is so different from the rest of the room yet still works puts my designing mind to work!

    Recently reupholstered my couches for super cheap using some stuff off of (a hidden jem to the rest of my design freaks out there…TRUST ME) and have just been inspired to go back and get fabric for new drapes from them too!

    Thanks for the inspiration guys!

    A magnificent place you have there, you definitely know how to make a space funky :)
    I work in IKEA and we have to recommend to people they should always attach their furniture to the wall.
    The doors usually weigh more than the wardrobe itself so to me this seems a bit like an unsafe position…

  10. Clever and cute, I like it !

    Great idea. I would like to see the other side as well. Definitely worth remembering if I ever move into a place with big rooms.
