Hackers Help: Äpplarö outdoor shelves as indoor wall shelves


Hello all!
I need simple shelves for my office and came upon the Äpplarö outdoor shelves that are normally used to go with the wood panel of the same collection.

I’m planning to drill two holes on each bracket to secure it on the wall. From what I’ve seen on the photos on Ikea’s website, I’ll also need to saw the metal part that would normally hold on the wood panel.


Has anyone been successful with this hack or could recommend another solution?

Your opinion is more than welcome 🙂
