22 Best Ikea Hacks for Kallax Shelf
At the time of this posting, I was making plans for a trip to our Arizona home to finish its makeover, collecting my thoughts on DIY projects to tackle. Our visits were always a whirlwind experience busy with renovation work and a little time for nature and family.
One area requiring attention was a niche in the living room about 10′ wide. The perfect space to house media, I had always loved the idea of a long, simple console we would construct ourselves.
Ikea’s Kallax series (which replaced their Expedit series) was a strong contender for such a media console since tweaking these shelving units is sort of legendary online.
So let’s revisit 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 way to use Kallax cubbies: in a mud room.
