My First Ikea Hack


Description: I created my first IKEA hack using what I think was an upper shelf piece from a desk. I created a bench by adding some reclaimed flooring for a back to sturdy it up. Some paint and home stenciled on it completed this piece for a great entry bench.

    The piece you have used as a base is the upper, removable, shelf component from a baby changing table/chest of drawers that IKEA sold about 12-15 yrs ago. No recollection of the name of the item but we’ve the whole thing in child #2‘s room.
