Materials: (2) Lack Wall Shelf, (2) Akurum Base Cabinet and (1) Akurum Wall Corner Cabinet
Description: We needed a cash-wrap station with room for supplies but with a small footprint. Since we use a mobile payment system on a tablet computer there is no need for a register to clutter our space. Our Lack-Akurum hack suits our needs and gets quite a few compliments.
Two Lack wall shelves were mounted back-to-back on a 2″x2″ strip of wood to create a countertop. The mounting brackets on each side were slightly offset to accommodate the screws. The countertop was then attached to the Akurum base cabinet from below. With the addition of a second base cabinet and a corner cabinet there is plenty of room for storing shopping bags and materials.
Sorry about the lack of build-out photos but this was an IKEA hack born from necessity and it came together quickly.
