Vittsjo Shelving Hack

Photo: IKEA.com

Materials: White spray paint, wood plywood sheves, Minwax stain

Description: Kate of Centsational Girl wanted a space to store books, art supplies, games, a TV as well as replace an old bulky laminate media unit. Enter the Vittsjo but it was not in her colour of choice.

A few spray cans later, the two tall Vittsjo shelving units are white. And the glass shelves are replaced with dark stained plywood.

See more of the Vittsjo makeover.

    I like it!! Don’t think I’ve really noticed Vittsjö before cause if I had I would probably have bought Vittsjö laptop-desk and one of the Vittsjös shelving units instead of the somewhat boring ones I have today. Nicely done!

    Is this a hack? It looks like a nice makeover to me.

    Completely different beast now. Ikea should really make a white variant.
