IKEA HACK: From Bookcase to Custom Closet
My son was in need of a closet but we shared a room and my closet was already taken. I wanted something that fit all that I needed to store for him without it feeling bulking or have it take up space. So I designed a custom closet using Ikea products and made a custom closet by using a bookcase.
First, I took the IKEA SUNDVIK children table that I bought in the 'As Is' section of IKEA and placed it at the wall.
After I built it the IKEA LAIVA bookcase, I placed it onto the SUNDVIK children's table.
Next, I took off the first shelf and place the IKEA BYGEL rail in the middle.
I got a pencil and outlined the nail section.
I took nails and screws in the nails through.
Next add the first shelf back on and take off the second shelf. Find out what I used the second shelf for.
Add some cloth baskets for clothes, toy box under the table, shoe section and you have yourself a custom closet.
