Lack, lack, lack in a heaven’s door


I wanted a sliding door for my bedroom but the wall where the door was supposed to hide was too small. So I had to find a trick. My idea was to make a folding door. But it was not enough. It had to be awesome, quick and easy to make.


Ikea items hacked :
- 3 LACK side tables – high gloss white
- 1 LACK side table – orange
- 2 LACK wall shelf – birch effect

Other items used :
- 1 sliding door system
- 4 hinges
- 6 fixing brackets
- adhesive paper – oak effect
- mat acrylic paint – orange
- some screws

The advantages of using Ikea LACK items :
- the LACK items are lights
- the finish is already great, no need to paint the front side

I used the 4 tables to make the main part of the door. I assembled the sliding door system to it and then added the wall shelf with the hinges. I chose not to fix the 2 shelves together, that way I can just close that upper part and let the cat go take a nap in the bedroom.

      I already answered that question. But I’m a nice person, so I will answer again.
      The system is called “Yoko”, the brand is “Geom”. I bought it in a french store called castorama. I don’t know if it’s sold elsewhere in the world…

    @Kari : If you need a great sound proofing door, I think it’s not the best solution. The thermic insulation is ok but for the sound, it’s a bit less perfect. You can always try to add some rubber joint.

    First of all, thank you all for you replies.
    @Brian @MDR : the system is named “Yoko” and manufactured by “Geom”. In France I bought it in Castorama.fr
    @Zuzanna : The raven is “Gustav”, from the designer “Ibride”. You can find it everywhere on the web.

    What sliding door system is that?

  13. The Lack series is actually made from door materials. So this is quite a close usage.
