daniel, a self-professed slave to the ikea lifestyle, and a hacker by heart, has repurposed the hopen dresser into a hip dvd cabinet.
he says, “i really liked the hopen dressers, and when i saw them at ikea, i noticed the semi-transparent glass, and started getting ideas. a large format printer, some 3600 DPI scans, some Office Depot poster roll paper, and about two days of construction, and you get this.”
