DRÖNA File Holder

Materials: IKEA DRÖNA, Mesh File Hanger, Foam Block (optional)

Description: The idea was pretty simple. I wanted a colorful and inexpensive file holder. I noticed that the dimensions of most of these standard mesh file holder were perfect to fit inside the IKEA DRÖNA. This would be a great idea to store files in the EXPEDIT shelves.

Price of this hack : $10
($5 DRÖNA , $5 Mesh File Hanger)


1. Mount the mesh file holder
2. Place inside DRÖNA

3. (optional) I decided to place little foam blocks in the corners to stabilize it but there is no need if the holder is not going to be put into excessive movement. The weight of the files should keep it steady.
