DIY: Using IKEA Shelf Unit as Storage Bench

Better Homes & Gardens

Not long ago, we blogged about using IKEA kitchen cabinets for a DIY storage bench in our kitchen. We just spotted a kindred idea in the November issue of Better Homes & Gardens. Textile designer Bonnee Sharp appears to have used an IKEA Lack shelf with IKEA legs to make a storage bench.The dimensions of the IKEA Lack shelf unit makes it so that legs are necessary. You could also use an IKEA Expedit shelf without legs since it has a wider trunk.

Either way, this is a clever idea for any room in the house that could benefit from some extra seating and some extra storage. To see Bonnee's inspiring home, with lots of fun ideas, click here and to see her Studio Bon Textiles website click here.
