Fun with IKEA’s $40 Varde wall shelf

Written By: Kathy Price-Robinson - Aug• 05•08

IkeavardeshelfIKEA sells a pretty nice $40 Varde wall shelf unit. But actually, it’s a little bland.

A couple of designers from Los Angeles offer some variations in the L.A. Times.

Above you see 1) the original in the center, 2) a metal grate and chain treatment on the left, and 3) the shelf embellished with old record album art on the right.

Tricking out this shelf would make a great contest. Let me know if you hear of one and I’ll enter the competition!
