The IKEA Lack Hack

The IKEA Lack that was hacked into an entertainment center

This has got to be one of the most inspirational hacks that we’ve seen in a while. The fact that the Lack shelf was transformed into a fully functional, and great-looking, entertainment center, means that you won’t have to spend the big bucks in order to have something that looks good.

Close up of the hack

This amazing-looking cabinet was hacked into an entertainment center by Jeff in LA. Jeff’s hack looks really awesome, and he’s integrated some great ideas, including a cable management system, which makes the IKEA Lack Hack that much sweeter. To start things off, if you don’t know what the Lack looks like, it’s basically a shelving unit that positioned the other way around.

Jeff used the IKEA Lack unit, with a 12′ rail guide from a local cabinet store, a few other parts that he had laying around to make this entertainment unit stand out. The doors of the unit are made from plywood. They were veneered with walnut and finished to give them that special look. The install was pretty simple. It’s straightforward. The slider channel needs to be cut and mounted. The low-profile rails are a great idea as well. He could have used that allowed for the doors to be removed easily, but the rails would have been more prominent. This way, they are neat and tidy. In order to remove them, the top of the Lack has to be unscrewed, which isn’t that big of a deal.

We hope that this will inspire you to hack your own shelves into something better. Simpler hacks include just mounting shelves horizontally, making for interesting entertainment units.
