  • Rattan doors for the EXPEDIT / KALLAX cubbies

    Rattan doors for the EXPEDIT / KALLAX cubbies

    This is an old hack of mine. I had an EXPEDIT TV shelving unit and wanted some BRANÄS drawers for it. However, for some of the cubbies a door was better suited, so I had to do a small hack. I hacked the rattan doors for the EXPEDIT but it will work…

    I created this table lamp and its name is BLANDA BLANDA. It’s shaped like a turtle. I used the BLANDA BLANK steel serving bowls. The biggest bowl I used as the lamp base, the smaller bowl as lamp holder. I made a hole in steel bowls using a drill w…

    Video Games Table for less than 100 euros

    I love to play ’80’s arcade games, so I wanted a video games table — something cool and compact for my living room to play in my spare time using my TV. So I got the idea to create something to be used both as a table and video game console too…

    First look at the 2019 IKEA catalogue and it does not disappoint

    There’s always one thing to look forward to in August – the new IKEA catalogue. This year also marks IKEA’s 75th anniversary year – so there is an even bigger buzz about the 2019 IKEA catalogue than normal. First, there’s no “theme” on…

    How to disguise your Bike Trailer as a end table

    I created this hack for two reasons. It saves space by not having to store my bike trailer and I really thought it would look interesting to use the trailer as an end table. To use the bike trailer all I do is lift off the top and connect to my bike.…

    Nothing if not a disco pirate, living the arrgh life with power tools

    When you look at this living room, you don't assume I live in rural Nebraska, do you? Now that you know that, you assume my neighbors assume the worst. You'd be correct. There's one fucking good thing about Nebraska though, and it's all I can think o…

    Arrrg, get me some friggin' Ikea...

    Do you know that I live farther from an Ikea store than most Canadians? Yep, true, dead center betwixt the one in Chicago and the one in Dallas. Either is a 14 hour trip. Sure, mapquest says Chicago's 4 hours closer, but when you get up there the tra…

    My living room was two shades of boring ass tan. Now it's Dutch Boy Ultra White.... or just "unmixed paint" as some would call it. But I sure did find a beautiful bright chartreuse for the window ledges.  After upcycling a vintage oval mirror into a…

    Victoria’s Secret Ads Are Lies. All Lies.
