I am hoping to get myself to Arizona to finish

the makeover of the getaway cottage there and

am collecting my thoughts about the projects

to tackle while we are visiting since it’s always

sort of a whirlwind experience where we

work hard and try to squeeze in family time.

 

One area we need to address is a niche in

the living room which is about 10′ wide.

It is the perfect space to house media, and

I have been toying with the idea of a long,

simple console that we build ourselves.

Ikea’s Kallax series (which replaced their

Expedit series) may be a possibility if

we want to tweak a few of these shelving units.

 

You may know I’m a fan of great Ikea hacks,

and already incorporated the easiest

(and tres luxurious) one with my

Ektorp sofas in this space.

 

So let’s take a tour of a bunch of projects

(found via Pinterest)

where Kallax was hacked with supreme success

and gather a bunch of inspiring ideas to pin.

And let’s start with maybe my favorite one

featured above.

I love how Nicole Gibbons Style had her upholsterer

create this slipcover for an Ikea bookcase!

Not only did she get a media console

for her TV, she gained beautiful concealed storage!

 

Here is what she stores under the slipcover:
