IKEA has probably the cheapest, nicest furniture ever. Nevermind the fact that 2 coffee tables I have bought from IKEA in the last 2 years have all broke, there’s always room for little hacking such as this cool Kitchen Countertop Shelf that will create a lot of extra space for your kitchen gadgets such as bowls, pans, and whatnot.
I have seen IKEA go from nothing to a national retailer in America and I have to say IKEA is still cheap furniture (I will never buy a coffee table from IKEA ever again) but hacking makes them better.
This is my first IKEA hack. I bought a Grundtal 800 mm shelf to put on the wall but then thought I’d try and utilize space over my kitchen bench but putting two uprights and mounting shelves back to back. Next step was adding Grundtal countertop lighting which worked out really well I think ( perfect fit ).
