    Do you have any problems keeping the sideways orientated DVD up? I am considering a reconfiguration of my upright racks and I’m worried about that.

    How did you manage to secure the ‘odd’ shelves (such as in the F and the M) onto the wall? I want to do something similar for my DVDs too

    • Derico says:

      That’s what I wondered, too.
      It is such a great idea.

    • fabrizia says:

      Using the supports provided by Ikea to mount the Lerberg on walls, nothing more.
      As I said the odd parts, like the horizontal parts of the F, are connected to the rest with metal bars and screws on the back.
      I hope I understood the question. :-)

    My goodness!! It’s such a wonderful hack. My hubby has a lot of cassettes(from 80′s) /cd/dvd collection. I think I can do this hack and make all the cassettes a display piece. Atleast the modern generation will come to know what it is all about.

    • fabrizia says:

      Those are designer chairs, the model is called Leaf by Arper. I found them second hand on Ebay (Italy)! I’m a lucky girl! :-)
