  1. How did you attach them? I bought my son a dresser set that he can use his whole life so I really don’t want to drill holes in it…

    Ikea in BC (canada) doesn’t have them in anymore either – they said they only get released a few at a time, you think such a huge demand item like this would be more available

  3. This is great. I wanted to do it once I saw this but found out the Ikea in Seattle doesn’t have any in stock and doesn’t know when they will again. So disappointing!!

      Yep, still waiting on Ikea MSP to get some back in stock, too. I feel your pain.

      I just picked some of these up about 1.5 weeks ago at my IKEA in Charlotte. They were FINALLY back in stock after checking relentlessly for months.

    Fantastic idea! Children’s books really deserve a display like that :)

  7. Very cute! I saw this idea in a couple DIY magazines over the past few months. It’s a great way to add some much needed storage
