Secondary Storage livingroom

UDDEN goes living room

Materials: UDDEN Wall units, coated chipboard, metal angles, screws

Description: I was looking for a sideboard/storage unit for the living room. As I have a open kitchen that can be seen from the sofa, I wanted something to match with my UDDEN kitchen units.

Still considering different solutions, I bought two wall units for the kitchen. As I assembled the units in the living room, I realized a nice solution that just needed very little hacking:

I built a rectangular base from coated chipboard and metal angles (approx. 10 cm in height), stacked six wall units on the top and fixated the ensemble with some metal screws here and there…

Et voila! a nice and clean sideboard with lots of storage (and pretty cheap as well).

    You should put two extra Udden wall units on the boiler and the metal pipe to hide it.
    Nice hack anyway!
