    I would like to do the same hack with my Vittsjö too but I’m hesitating because the look of the wood shelves. -> They are higher than the glass one, no? Doesn’t looks strange like that?

    I’m new to the world of the “Ikea Hacks” and it has CHANGED my world! Love to hate these! LOL Can you please tell me what type of wood was used on these shelves? I’m SOOOOOO doing this!

    Thanks so much!
