This behind the couch storage and charge station was made from leftover IKEA parts after we moved to another place. The core components are obviously IKEA, what I did add on top were some wheels and some plain white boards which serve as covers eventually.
How to make a behind the couch storage and charge station
1. Cut 3 equally long cover boards and 1 for the front panel.
2. Use a jigsaw to make a proper slot in order to place the cable passage.
3. Attach the wheels to the bottom side of the BESTÅs.
4. Bolt all components together.
5. Assemble the 3 top covers by using IKEA door hinges and push openers
6. Add the handle to the front panel
7. Plug in the socket strip

We want more space for ourselves yet don’t want to be without our beloved family of devices. See how it’s done.
