Ikea Hack Attack: The DIY Munchkin Closet


Materials: Gorm shelf, Mulig valet & old Ikea coffee table legs

I love the convenience & excitement of big city living but space is always an issue…

The kiddo & her wardrobe had completely outgrown the dresser that once oh-so-neatly stored her little clothes & accessories and my search for something larger (yet small enough to fit into the scant space available in her room) revealed nil, so…

I once again hit the As-Is section of Ikea & let my imagination take over:

*our old Ikea Gorm shelf + an As-Is Mulig clothing valet + a bit of creativity = a groovy new munchkin closet that fits perfectly in the last remaining space in her room!

After painting the Gorm shelving unit blue I simply rearranged the shelves & removed the center wood slat from the top shelf to allow the valet space to peek through, added a couple of old Ikea coffee table legs to the inside of the unit for more hanging space and popped some DIY’d storage bins onto the shelves!
