Ikea Besta Hack with Decals





IMG_1951

This is a custom buffet I made for the entryway in my home using the Ikea Besta shelf unit (24″by25″) and smaller Besta shelf (23x25in)

I purchased 3 of the wood finish doors for the Besta.

I went to home depot and purchased braces for the bottom and the back to screw the two units together.

I purchased 4 10-inch Hairpin Legs from ebay seller nina_lynne who makes custom pieces from Florida.

After screwing everything together I propped the unit upright and added a custom Chevron decal made specifically for ikea units from etsy seller (www.harbordesignco.com) who also will do custom pieces for any piece of furniture with easy to use removable adhesive vinyl.

Pretty easy hack and a great spin on modern furniture with the added decal.

    Which wooden doors are this? Cannot find them at Ikea in Europe.

    Really nice! You mentioned you purchased the wooden doors. Did you get those from IKEA ? Because I can’t seem to find that kind of wood (walnut?) on IKEA

    This is such a great idea and use of decals!!! Not only that, it would be so easy just to change your mind if you didn’t like how it came out :)
