How to add a kids clothes rack to IKEA IVAR
First thing is to assemble the IVAR shelving unit, leaving space for hanging clothes.
Then, hang the IVAR hooks on the shelf, I did not screw them in. They are quite a snug fit.
My plan was to hang the clothes rod beneath the shorter IVAR shelf. If you place it on the larger IVAR shelf you probably need 3 hooks or the wood dowel may bend.
Next, measure and cut the wood dowel to fit the space.
To ensure a snug fit, I put a little piece of cardboard on each hook.
Lastly, insert the wood dowel and hang the little dresses!
It is a simple and totally reversible little hack. When your little one grows up a little you can simply move the kids clothes rack to a higher shelf.
