IKEA’s LACK + Dioder = Great Home Entertainment Center
Getting the right home entertainment system can cost quite a bit of money. In these troubled economic times, we like to pinch pennies wherever we can. Marc Lane decided to use a cheap IKEA Lack bookcase and turn it into an entertainment center.
Marc explains that he needed a new entertainment unit. His old one didn’t look that good and all of the new ones that he liked seemed to cost more than $500. He then found the 100-dollar Lack unit at IKEA, which looked like a perfect base to start his project off. First off, he needed some feet, which he got from eBay, but you can easily find your own at any hardware store.
Then he got a pair of Dioder LED lights from IKEA. He laid them out on his entertainment center. He even saved a bit on the LED lights by going through some bins and finding Dioder sold ‘as is’ out of their packaging. Once the lights were placed, they were set in place. Since he has a cat, he also needed to work on putting all of the cables out of the way using cable fasteners.
