I have a LACK TV unit, but I have also a lot of devices that cannot fit into it. And IKEA does not provide other LACK products that can suit with the TV unit (as the BESTÅ can.) This is my version of the IKEA TV stand and LACK range extension.
IKEA items used:
- IKEA LACK TV unit
- IKEA LACK side table
Other materials and tools:
- Wood board 50cm x 44.5cm
- 4 square shelf supports per wood shelf
- Self-adhesive vinyl wood floor planks
Instructions for IKEA TV stand and LACK extension
Assemble the LACK side tables.
Cut as many wood boards as you need to fit your electronic devices. These wood boards will become the lower tier shelves on the LACK side table.
Set a suitable height to fit the height of your device and fix the shelf support brackets into the leg of the LACK side table. Place the cut wood boards on top of the shelf support brackets.
To finish the top, I used self-adhesive floor planks with a wood grain.
The LACK side table can fit 2 or 3 additional shelves, which is the perfect height for my devices.
The cost is the best part of this IKEA TV stand hack! 5 euro for each LACK side table, 1 or 2 euro for each wood board!
Now my IKEA TV stand and media storage look seamless with this simple and easy range extension.
