How To: Turn an Ikea Lack Shelf into a Media Console

It's time for this to come full circle. We first saw this clever Ikea hack (the alteration of an Ikea Lack unit into a sliding-doored media cabinet) on a NY Flickr Find: the apartment tour of Portland-based Artdsgnr, aka Matt. Then a similar hack appeared here on the SF blog, in Ryan's tour of his media room. Reader jp commented that instructions on how to make the cabinet had been posted on Ikea Hacker...

And when we visited Ikea Hacker we learned that Artdsgnr/Matt had been sent there (to share the details of how he did it) by an AT reader.

We're a little dizzy, but that makes no nevermind.

Here's Artdsgnr/Matt's slideshow and even better, his instructions.
