To ease into the working week we’re sharing a very easy Ikea Kassett Hack today. This is incredibly straightforward, and it really does add something unique to some very cheap storage. Also, it’s nearly time for spring cleaning, and who doesn’t love something to make organisation more stylish?
For those of you that don’t frequent Ikea quite as much as we do you can pick up the Kassett storage boxes for £2.15 for a pair. The boxes are pretty stylish on their own, with metal finishings and modern pulls which I absolutely love. Originally we didn’t intend to paint the boxes, but they looked a little dull on the bookcases.
We had some grey paint we’d already purchased for another project (yet to come to light) so a load of masking tape and a couple of coats later the boxes looked like this:
The whole project was super thrifty – with the only cost being for the boxes! I’ll share how they look on the rest of the shelf once we’ve finished improving the shelves themselves.
Update 2018: I don’t think they make these anymore! But there are lots of other options you could use – all the different options can be viewed here.
