This is one of my hobbys. I like finding new uses for
my old stuff! But I also like finding new uses for the crap that people
give and throw away! And I have found my people at Ikea
Hacker, a place where people find new and different uses for Ikea's
great products. It's a great way to Recycle stuff.
My Omar Potrack:
THANKS FOR THE MEMORY (TABLE) :
I saw a hack on Ikea Hacker and just had to do it!I made a memory
Here is my potrack- it is made from the shelf unit of an Omar
unit that I didnít have use for anymore. I simply took some eyebolts
and found the studs in my ceiling, some eyehooks and fender washers to
cover the holes on the omar unit, and some chain and clips to hook it into
the ceiling. I suppose one could use molly bolts to hook in the ceiling,
but I felt safer using eyebolts directly into the studs since my cookware
is extremely heavy.
Super easy- One
IKEA LACK Table and one IKEA
RIBBA FRAME. just tape the back of the frame too the table with Velcro
and it is done!
MY "GREEN" IKEA LILLBERG LOVESEAT:
LILLBERG love seat isn't exactly a hack; I found the frame at the Ikea
AS IS section of IKEA Seattle for $75. Then I purchased two Froarp
seatcovers for the lillberg from the storefor $40. I went home, cut up
some old foam rubber seat cushions with my handy electric carving knife
(the best thing to use when cutting foam rubber) to the right size, stuffed
the seat cushion covers and VOILA a new Lillberg Love seat for $115. Sammy
the Cat loves it!
My LERBERG DVD RACKS
Super easy hack- I simply connected 3 LERBERG
dvd racks together and mounted them on the wall. Note:I cut one of the
sections out of one rack to clear the heater.
MY "BUILT-IN" CHINA CABINET
An old hack- I took a bookshelf- can't think of the name offhand and
built it in to the wall- to show off my china and such.
RAST YOUR FEET OR YOUR SEAT!
Another simple hack! I upholstered two RAST
bedside units to make footstools that double as a coffee table!
another simple hack- I took teo Billy
units and installed two Jarpen
shelves between them using "L" brackets and added a hanging glass holder
and a Vurm
wine rack to the underside of the top one
