The BEST(A) LEGO shelves
Materials: Besta shelves & doors, wooden coasters, DIODER, spray paint
Description: On Christmas I was brainstorming with my mother on her workspace makeover, I finally got the idea how to design some more shelves next to my Mandal LEGO storage. I noticed that BESTA doors could transform into giant LEGO plates.
So I started working on it, bought the shelves, doors and some wooden coasters, spraypainted everything in different colours and … was already done. Since there is no 3×3 plate from LEGO, I thought that I could turn the giant square door into a LEGO logo, and I did.
You can see the whole process on the link to snapguide below. Took me … well from Christmas until today (but I only worked in the evenings…)
By leaving a little space between the shelves I was able to put in some display areas which I lit up using DIODER lights. It turned out to be a great piece, everyone who enters the room suddenly turns to the shelves and smiles.
For everyone who’d like to build something like it on his own, have a look at the detailed steps I documented in the snapguide:
