Laptop stand and desk unclutterer
Rick tips me on this laptop stand featured on Lifehacker. Moritzvd repurposed the Mackis CD storage drawer to run some cables and voila! it’s a laptop stand with organizer, desk declutter all in one.

Disco light USB box
Handem hid an annoying LED lit USB connector underneath one of the tree part Risten boxes, to create a fun disco light USB box.

Fira cutlery holder
Lani lives in a small studio in Amsterdam. She says, “When I moved in, the studio was renovated, but the kitchen had still the original style; low counter top (my boyfriend used to do the dishes sitting on a chair), not many closets and no drawers to place cutlery. To add extra storage place, I placed an Ivar cabinet in my kitchen. During its assemble, I squeezed in a Fira drawer inside it for my cutlery. I did not have to use any glue or nails, it exactly fits!”

Save your rug
Laura recycled an old towel to replace the worn rubber backing on her old Ikea rug.

Easy headboard
Gràcia, from Spain, says, “My dad, Santiago just hung an Ikea Vika Byske table top to work as our headboard. We gave it a coat of varnish and attached some Numerar legs to it since we were worried the wall wouldn’t be able to hold such a heavy table top. It’s a beautiful headboard, the perfect size for our mattress.”
