Description: After carefully deciding the sizes of the shelves and of the “working station”, (sketchup plan appeared pretty useful to avoid mistakes) I cut/sand/tint in teak color/varnished each part from one 5′ x 5′ cherry wood board bought at a local shop. I made them a kind of back to avoid the books from falling off since it was going to be used as a room divider.
Boring white Stolmen poles were turned to black with spray paint.
I added two black desk leg from Ikea also to provide more stability.
The whole unit was finally assembled according to Ikea Stolmen instructions. Tadam ! Multi-purpose unit whit a vintage twist.
