I recently bought a set of shelves from Ikea for my tv and for some extra dvd storage space.
When I’d put it together, I found that it was a bit too tall for the space, and I didn’t like the amount of space between the shelves. So I decided to modify it. I set the shelves to a spacing that I liked, and then trimmed the uprights to the height of the top shelf.
I decided to use the scraps to make two little shelves to put at the back of the bottom two shelves to create even more dvd storage space.
I used the scraps I’d trimmed off, along with a plank of 2×2 that I bought to make the two small shelves.
I’m thinking of staining it a darker colour because it sort of fades into the yellow of the wall, but that’ll be later. For now, I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.
