One of the best parts of Ikea furniture is that you can take these affordable pieces and transform them into stunning statement pieces with just a few DIY steps and a couple of extra materials. One of the best examples of this are the Trones shoe cabinets. Since these fit together, you can stack as many as you’d like, and with a few finishing touches, you can make your own minimalistic and stylish pieces of furniture that will complement any room.
The first step is actually one that’s made possible by the Trones cabinets themselves. You can drill them into the wall, stacking as needed and placing however many you want side by side. If you want a small console unit, you can do 2 by 2, and for a larger one you can do 3 by 3. If you really want to go all out, you can even stack them all along the wall for easy storage that’s also still stylish.
To elevate these simple cabinets, you can get a wooden plank that’s either the size of the top of the cabinets, or if you prefer, have a bit of overhang on the sides to create a more traditional look. You can then varnish the wood to give it a protective seal and polished look.
You can leave the cabinets as is or you can also choose to add some stylish pulls to really give them a finished feel and fool everything into thinking you’ve sprung for a high end console or cabinet piece.
The best part of these projects is that they are so incredibly customizable. You can fit these into any area of the home, and transform them into cabinets, consoles, wall storage, and so much more. Some people have even added them on to their beds for some extra storage as well. You can be as creative as your heart desires.
