Hackers Help: Seeking discontinued IKEA fabric

Dear Ikea Hackers community,

For several years, I have been trying to find a few meters or yards of a discontinued IKEA fabric that was sold here in the US sometime around 2010 or 2012.

It was one of several called “Kajsastina”, in dark grey with a large sunburst or dandelion design. (see picture below). It has been featured in at least one IKEA hack on this site.

IKEA items:
  • Kajsastina grey starburst fabric

I am hoping that somebody has some left over in a closet somewhere. If you have any leads, or have some of this discontinued IKEA fabric you are willing to sell, please email me at urchiken+fabric AT gmail DOT com.

Hi Wehaf

I’ll also post this on our IKEAHackers Facebook Community Group and see if you get any leads there. 

Good luck,

I have 2 BILLY bookcases for some years now. And I wanted to close them up but not with the classical doors (heavy, not nice and expensive) and more in line with my living room style. So I decided to hack fabric sliding doors for my BILLYs. See more of the fabric sliding doors.

#2 Fabric speaker doors for IKEA BESTÅ

I wanted an easy to make a solution that would conceal my hardware; surround receiver, DVD player, front center speaker consoles and paraphernalia.

In case I would come to own a front-firing sub (my current one is down-firing), I opted for a BESTÅ TV unit with 3 sections, so I would be able to conceal the sub also and still have space for the mentioned hardware.

Instead of installing active cooling behind glass panels and having the problem of having a visible front center surround speaker (and sub), I wanted a TV unit with speaker fabric doors.
