25 IKEA Alex And Ekby Alex Hacks You’ll Love
IKEA continues inspiring us to buy and hack its pieces, and today we are discussing an Alex drawer unit and an Ekby Alex shelf, which belong to the same collection. The items look similar: there are slim drawers with cutouts instead of knobs or handles. Let’s take a look at some ideas to renovate them!
IKEA Ekby Alex Shelf
EKBY ALEX features two slim drawers and allows you to keep your favorite items visible on the open shelf and hide away things you need close at hand in the drawers. The shelf can be actually used as a shelf – attach it to the wall and use whenever you want. Make a pretty and slim console table of an Ekby Alex shelf and some legs you like, or just skip the legs creating a floating look. You may also make a cool vanity of an Ekby Alex shelf: place the unit on legs or build it into a corner, attach to the wall – it’s totally up to you. If you need more storage for your makeup, you may place two Ekby Alex shelves on each and other and voila! What else can you make of an Ekby Alex shelf? A slim desk adding some hairpin or other legs – it’s a great idea for a small home office nook. An underbed storage piece – just place Ekby Alex on casters and put in under the bed – so easy! A mobile coffee table of an Ekby Alex shelf on legs and casters.

IKEA Alex Drawer Unit
An Alex drawer unit is great for storage and for converting it into another piece, too. If you are satisfied with its role, just spruce it up to fit your needs: paint or add contact paper creating an ombre effect, add bookplates or chalkboard labels. Change the drawers if you want and add knobs or handles if you like. Alex units can be used to make a desk, place two of them and add a tabletop, and voila! You may also go for one Alex unit and some different legs on the other side, for example, trestle ones. Enjoy!
