These honeycomb shelves came our way at a perfect time — not only do they satisfy my need for cheerful spring colors, but they also provide a great storage solution to alleviate spring-cleaning woes. Sarah and Josh, the creative husband-and-wife photographers behind Arrow & Apple , whipped up these pretty hexagonal shelves for free using salvaged cabinet doors and brackets. They really lucked out on the color palette of the old cabinets, and I love the mix of painted and unpainted pieces. Luckily, recreating this look is easier than you think.

i’ve always loved seeing pictures of students using leather book straps; they are so charming and orderly. but to be honest, it is not the best way to carry heavy books around town is it? but to carry something that doesn’t move, like a table…perfect! i went to a local recycling center to pick up some extra books, built a couple small cubbies out of wood, and went to work! the rest is just gravity and organization (and a tiny bit of glue). have fun!
Materials: Ikea chest Rast Description: I had great collection of stamps from all over the world, but it was only lying around and nobody ever took a look at it. I glued a compilation of the most interesting stamps on top of the IKEA Rast chest. A nightmare for every serious stamp collector, because I will never be able to take it off again and some of the stamps are really rare. Afterwards I covered the stamps with a layer of plastic film, so I can wipe the chest.
Before I dive into the hack, I wanted to take this chance to wish you all a very merry Christmas. I won't be posting any hacks over the weekend, as I will be busy stuffing my face and opening presents. Hope you will be getting some great gifts too. Should you receive one off Steve Jobs' production line, you may want to hack this stand for it and save a bundle. ~ Jules Materials: $3 EKBY VALTER bracket, 1 dowel, 2 screws Description: 1) Take Ekby Valter bracket and turn it upside down.
Materials: Varde, Akurum, Lidi and Besta Description: We had a bare corner in our small kitchen that we couldn't decide how to fill till my husband came up with this idea.

Critter Cruiser's adjustable racing wheel allows for the car to work in three different ways!

Materials: TRABY, jigsaw, staple gun. Description: We had four pet rats for a while, and they needed a comfortable, yet stimulating place to live, when they weren't running loose (under close supervision.) We decided to do an IKEA Hack, before we knew there was such a thing.
Materials: Lindmon venetian blinds, Ikea measuring tape Description: I love going to the as-is section to find things I can use for school projects and I picked up some Lindmon venetian blinds to use as title blocks for a presentation. They didn't work out the way I wanted them to and put them aside. Finding them one night gave me the idea to make a frame out of them, which turned into this cute light. I first cut off all the strings to remove the slats, layered them and glued them down. before i placed the last layer of slats, I made a basket weave of the Ikea measuring tapes and finished it off with the final layer.
Materials: 1x Ribba frame (25x25x4,5cm), old laptop, sharp knife, black paint, some plywood (3mmx25cmx25cm) Description: Image you bought a new laptop, what to do with the old one? 1. Disassemble the old laptop and make sure the motherboard fits in the 25x25cm frame. 2. If it fits continue and remove necessary accessories from your laptop (I reused the power, LAN and USB connectors and the power switch).
Materials: GODMORGON Description: My idea was to make a simple, chic, not too modern cabinet for the main bathroom. I chose the IKEA GODMORGON cabinet with two drawers for its size and simplicity. The thing is, IKEA does not offer more than one option for the counter (2 built-in sinks in a glossy white counter) and it is far from what I wanted. My first goal was to built a wood counter massive as a fireplace tablet. Because I didn't want to use legs for the installation of the GODMORGON, I couldn't obviously use a huge beam of wood because it would have been too heavy and too expensive for its use anyway.
