So many wonderful IKEA hacks out there. I highly recommend checking out www.ikeahackers.net. Ikea Hackers has a lot of inspiring ideas.
Now for me, I did not want to build my own storage cabinet, that's right I was feeling a smidge lazy. I knew IKEA had some awesome storage items and cheap to boot. My entryway was needing a focal point, and some additional storage. I spotted these organizers while I was shopping.
Once I put them together, which only took 30 mins, I realized they were not as tall or wide as I wanted. I knew I was going to have to make a few changes to these. What did I do? I added a sheet of plywood to each side. To achieve the height I wanted. From there you can nail the plywood to the Trofast cabinet
Next I added trim to the top of the built-ins, and a shelf to attach the two cabinets together. Just by adding trim to the top it gives the cabinets a customized looked. You can make any plain bookcase or cabinet look expensive by adding trim.
I love how this hack turned out! My kids have their individual bucket for shoes and school supplies. Only time will tell if these cabinets will help my kids stay organized, cross fingers!!
