I made a modern TV stand combining the KALLAX shelving unit with legs from the FROSTA stool.
IKEA items used:
- 1 KALLAX 1 x 3 unit (42 x 111cm)
- 1 FROSTA (legs)
- 2 KALLAX doors
- 1/2 Kallax drawer
Other items / equipment used:
- 1 plywood board birch 38 x 103,8 x 0,6cm
- 1 plywood board birch 38 x 33,6 x 0,6cm (maybe painted in white)
- wood glue
- short screws (4x25mm),
- 4mm wood drill, cordless drill and a table saw with fence
Total costs: circa 100€.
Saw the FROSTA legs at a length of 18cm.
Glue and screw the wide plywood board at the bottom of the KALLAX shelving unit.
Adjust FROSTA legs at the bottom (like at a 60° angle).
Drill 4mm holes into the plywood board and KALLAX bottom at the hole positions of the feet.
Screw the truncated FROSTA legs with supplied screws.
Put the KALLAX on the FROSTA legs.
Mount the two KALLAX doors and the half KALLAX drawer (one drawer, saw through the drawer – mount at half height).
Slope the drawer in the fence and lay the smaller board on the drawer beam.

Other modern TV stands you may like:
A clean and minimalist TV stand. This was hacked from the IKEA LACK shelving unit but you can easily do the same with the KALLAX.
One of our all time favourites – the BESTÅ TV unit with stone wall panel.
Another BESTÅ TV stand but we like this for letting us control the gadgets behind closed doors.
This one we really love for the pop of color inside the TV unit.
