RE: IKEA Lounge

Hi,

Thanks Major and Simon.

Slightly adapted units to suit my own equipment. Looking for somewhere else to put (some of) BD collection as I think as it is, it's a bit untidy. Would have been ideal had a few of the partitions been bang on size for storage but I hadn't thought of this before I completed the build.

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

RE: IKEA Lounge

Hi,

Thanks GSB.

The TV unit is an Expedit and a shelf from B&Q, the PC unit is an Expedit and a Lack shelf both from IKEA.

The legs under each shelf are also from IKEA - called Capita they are available in 2 sizes.

A lot of searching (and IKEA lunches) before we finally achieved our goal but very pleased with the end result.

Just need to sort out BD storage now and we'll be done!

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.
