Brett’s TV bench from IKEA Stolmen chests – simple but sexy.
“Got an easy one, but think it looks pretty hot. I got 3 IKEA Stolmen 43” chests, and put them together to make a long TV bench, removed the drawer from the centre bottom chest, and added the Trettioen LED lighting strip to the back to give a nice glow when watching TV at night.”
Brett has yet to add some hinges to make the old drawer front into a door that folds down.
Other ways to hack the Stolmen:
– As a floating credenza for the bedroom or as a console.
– As poles for a floating TV when you don’t have the luxury of a TV stand
– As a media unit for a flat TV. Lots of storage for DVDs and other gadgets.
