I just put together a kid’s closet for my little one, which turned out great.

In our hallway, I had a little spot and needed a place for my son’s coats, shoes and accessories. I could’t find anything that would fit and looked good. So I decided to make one myself.

IKEA items used:

  • EKET cabinet
  • EKET adjustable feet
  • EKET box
  • 3 different SKUGGIS hooks
  • DITTE fabric
  • DRAGAN box

Hacking a kid’s closet for the hallway

First, I got 2 EKET cabinets, the deep ones to put the EKET box in. The adjustable EKET feet to level it out.

Then I got some some hooks. I choose the SKUGGIS and a DRAGAN box to put in small bits.

Next, I cut the wood panel to the right height and rounded the edges and painted it white.

After that, I searched the internet for a nice wallpaper and came across a “half moon” wallpaper.

I took it as an inspiration and used some potatoes to stamp the color on the panel.(Use a sponge to soak up some color and press the potato onto it. This way you won’t get to much color on the stamp)

When the paint dried, I mounted the wooden panel onto the EKET cabinets using screws, drilled in from the back.

To keep the two cabinets in front together, I used some double-sided adhesive tape.

I also taped the hooks and box with the double-sided adhesive tape on. (You could use screws too.)

To create the seat I used a thin wooden panel, put some foam on top and wrapped it in DITTE fabric, fixed with tape.

That’s it. And I am really happy with the outcome.

The part that took the longest was the stamping.

You can personalize this idea with all kind of different products and colors.
