While the finishing of some Ikea pieces leaves something to be desired, there’s no doubt that the underlying skeletal structure of the brand’s furniture, especially its storage solutions, are sound. In recent years, a cottage industry of Ikea “hackers” has sprung up to provide consumers the most bang for their buck by offering higher-end upgrades (legs, knobs, doors, etc.) to Ikea’s otherwise downmarket furniture. In that vein, Sweedish Ikea hacker Prettypegs has just launched a new collection of panels that completely change the look of Ikea’s trusty Bestå storage system.
The “Frontly” lineup features a selection of thin, self-adhesive wooden panels that don’t require any assembly or disassembly — they simply stick on to the doors of a Bestå cabinet. They’re available in three different sizes, four different colors (pink, gray, white and mint green) and come in four different textures. Given that they start at just $26, they’re a very affordable way to add some character to your home.
