Ikea Hackers

I'm not a big fan of Ikea for various reasons.

But, I have to admit an admiriation for creative people who find new ways of adapting things to uses their creator may have never imagined.

IKEA Hackers - Clever ideas and hacks for your IKEA

Quote: is a site about modifications on and repurposing of Ikea products. Hacks, as we call it here, may be as simple as adding an embellishment, some others may require power tools and lots of ingenuity.
One of my favorites. Balcony Bar - IKEA Hackers - IKEA Hackers

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.

Well, I'm surprised to find myself out there on the cutting edge with something. Just a few weeks ago I used a couple of Billy bookcases and a couple of pieces of lumber to make a shelf/storage unit for the kitchen. Total cost $80 and a few hours of my time. Looks pretty good according to DW and solves some of our kitchen storage issues.
