I was looking for a back panel for my ALEX storage unit unit. The original one sits inside the unit (see pix below) and didn’t leave enough room for my gaming computer. It also didn’t allow for any ventilation.
I browsed through hardware store websites to see if I could have one cut for me, but couldn’t find anything. Then I discovered that IKEA actually sells a pegboard that fits the unit perfectly.
