TV shelf with door stoppers for legs
This is neat. Door stoppers as legs for the Lack shelf. Kudos, Scott.
The door stoppers are aluminium rubber-tipped door stoppers and fixed to the bottom of a Lack wall shelf using the screws provided. It also happens to be the perfect snuggle height for his DVD recorder and sound system.

Starry starry canopy hack
Handem gave her daughter the stars.
When we turn off the lights at night it looks like she's sleeping under the stars with many little bugs flying around her.
Some ribbons in matching colors tied to a bow around the hoop makes it even more girlie romantic to look at during the day."
Francesca's steel shoe rack
Shoe lover Francesca hacks a shoe rack that offers plenty of storage and doesn't cost a lot.
She says, "Well, everything started with the fact that I did need a place to put myshoes in and, like every Italian girl, I've got plenty of shoes! This made the traditional furniture for shoes completely useless, unless I was ready to pay a fortune (and of course I wasn't :)...thus I thought to have a look at what Ikea had to offer and, "ecco fatto", I found exactly what I was looking for.
At Milano-Carugate Ikea I've bought two pieces of Hyllis, a 4-level steel shelf really cheap (not even 10,00 euros each!) and about 5 meters of Gisela fabric (about 5,00 euro per meter), the one with huge colored squares on it (but of course I've just tried to find a fabric which could suit the other colors of the room, there are a lot of different kind of fabric to choose from!)
I put together the shelves, and trust me it was quite an easy job. I assembled the shelves, paying attention not to screw in all the screws... I left the ones on the vertical elements (let's say the ones on the legs of the shelf) free from any screws, and you will soon understand why.
I then took the fabric and covered 3 of the 4 sides, overstretching the fabric, aiming to have the best result. And then, to block it, I screwed in the rest of the screws and, voilà!, here you see the nice result!
After repeating the procedure a second time for the second piece of Hyllis, I decided that it was better to cover also the front of shelves, and this is what I did: I used one of the traditional curtain-holder by Ikea (Index 70x120cm) and hung what was left from the Gisela fabric, exactly like a window curtain. I like the results!"
