Ikea Hack Hemnes Wall Shelf - Sweet Seattle Life

Materials: Hemnes wall unit

We had a tricky space to fill in our daughter’s nursery: very narrow and rather short. All of the regular bookshelves and media units were too wide and wouldn’t allow for the closet door (not shown) to open. So we assembled the shorter Hemnes wall unit and beefed it up with two 3/4 plywood boards, screwed on legs, and a thick foam bench seat (covered with Ikea fabric). Added a few drawers, and presto, bench and toy storage unit.

    I love the look of the nursery!!! Do you have more pictures of it somewhere?

    Thanks for the hack.

    Thanks! They’re called Umbra Flowers and you can find them on Amazon in either black or white. They pin into the wall with small nails and then snap on.

    Love the hack. Also love the flower decorations above it – where is that from, or did you make it yourself?
