Home IKEA HACKS Bedroom Materials: BESTA shelf unit I had 2 BESTA shelf units with no use since I moved from a smaller house. So, I decided to add 4 hairpin legs and a 3-foot led strip to turn these units into lightning nightstands. Is easy as 123. Bought 8 hairping legs on eBay for $96 and 2 led light strips for $10, also from eBay. Then I screwed the legs using M8-1.25 x 20 screws to attach it to the shelf unit.
