Gorm window sill





Materials: Gorm, Behandla

Description: My wife and I always wanted a window sill that doubles as a bench. The only problem is that the required wood was to expensive. Then I thought of Gorm, the cheapest shelving unit from Ikea.

I used 8 Gorm 50 cm shelves and 8 height extension posts. First I painted them white using Behandla. I sawed them to a breadth of 35 cm. And used the sides to connect the boards to the window frame.

The extension posts are used as legs.

  3. That’s a great idea, way cheaper than the real deal but just as functional and aesthetically pleasing! Nice work :)
