The couple purchased and assembled two of the IKEA wardrobes in the newly designated mudroom; in between the units, Jason constructed a seating bench and a couple of cubbies for more storage. And, indeed, when I did open the package they were more bronze than I wanted so I gave them (and the screws that came with them) a quick spray and was happy with the result. And I still need to get a real cushion for the bench, but overall I think it looks good, cost us only about $100 and gives us the drop zone we needed! Our baseboard is a two-piece moulding and not the speedbase commonly used today so we had to remove both pieces. Dec 3, 2018 - When we moved into this house six and a half years ago, I knew that one day we’d give our mudroom/laundry room a major overhaul. Although we’re not completely done with our mudroom makeover yet, we’ve made some major progress, including building an amazing IKEA Hemnes Hack: DIY Mudroom Bench and Storage! amzn_assoc_search_bar = "false";

Good luck! Hack an Ikea Hemnes TV unit to create a classic mudroom bench by fastening base molding and a new top to a cabinet designed to display a flat-screen TV. But before we got into any of the fun stuff, two things needed to be dealt with: (1) the giant white doorbell needed to go and (2) we needed to cut out a piece of baseboard so that the TV stand cum bench could fit flush to the wall. I live in a Colonial house built in the pre-mudroom era. Lately, I’ve noticed that the kitchen printables on... © 2020 - Maison Mass  •  Disclosure See how we did an IKEA mudroom hack to create a built-in using IKEA pieces and some scrap wood all in one weekend to create a drop-zone for back to school!

The original TV console had two shelves on either side of the unit that we wanted to use for shoe storage. The shelf we used was 46-7/8″ or about 119 cm. Already this morning, I was able to point to the bench when asked “where are my shoes?” thirty seconds before the bus was scheduled to arrive. A very effective Ikea Hemnes hack is to change the top of your piece. Assemble the Hemnes TV unit through Step 27 of the manufacturer’s instructions. The top piece where the shelf sat is 8 1/2″ high and the smaller horizontal board for the hooks is 4 1/2″ high. I can’t begin … There are certainly many TV stands that would work well, but for our small space our options were limited. In a word, no. 4. Please try again. amzn_assoc_ad_type = "smart";
