I just put together a kid’s closet for my little one, which turned out great.
In our hallway, I had a little spot and needed a place for my son’s coats, shoes and accessories. I could’t find anything that would fit and looked good. So I decided to make one myself.
IKEA items used:
- EKET cabinet
- EKET adjustable feet
- EKET box
- 3 different SKUGGIS hooks
- DITTE fabric
- DRAGAN box
- Wood panel
- Roller brush
- Double-sided adhesive tape
Hacking a kid’s closet for the hallway
First, I got 2 EKET cabinets, the deep ones to put the EKET box in. The adjustable EKET feet to level it out.
Then I got some some hooks. I choose the SKUGGIS and a DRAGAN box to put in small bits.
Next, I cut the wood panel to the right height and rounded the edges and painted it white.
After that, I searched the internet for a nice wallpaper and came across a “half moon” wallpaper.
I took it as an inspiration and used some potatoes to stamp the color on the panel.(Use a sponge to soak up some color and press the potato onto it. This way you won’t get to much color on the stamp)
When the paint dried, I mounted the wooden panel onto the EKET cabinets using screws, drilled in from the back.
To keep the two cabinets in front together, I used some double-sided adhesive tape.
I also taped the hooks and box with the double-sided adhesive tape on. (You could use screws too.)
To create the seat I used a thin wooden panel, put some foam on top and wrapped it in DITTE fabric, fixed with tape.
That’s it. And I am really happy with the outcome.
The part that took the longest was the stamping.
You can personalize this idea with all kind of different products and colors.
