This side of the room looked a little heavy. So, we cut down the BENNO CD tower and used it as a support leg at the other end of the L-shape. The second NUMERAR countertop was then put on top and attached to the strapping.
IKEA has a $2 aluminum transition strip which we used to cover the seam between the two countertops. At this joint, we installed a GALANT leg under the countertop for extra support.
How our IKEA Home Office all came together
Also, since the CD tower had a shallower depth than the countertop, we found an EXPEDIT piece in the “As Is” section and butted it up to the tower to make it look deeper.
A few final touches … We sewed curtains from the IKEA GUNVOR fabric. Then, used some IKEA picture frames and magazine files for decor. Lastly, we threw down an existing IKEA area rug and finished the room.
It took a bit of work but now we love working in our IKEA home office.”
