Ikea-hack Lerberg receiver stand


I’d this idea of a new receiver stand in my head, paralleled legs in a slight angle with different shelves.
So I browsed a little on Ikea and find the Lerberg-shelf (http://www.ikea.com/se/sv/catalog/products/70114753/), it was almost exactly the way I imagined it in my head. I thought if I could bend the back legs it would be nice and my maybe shorten the legs.
It’s much easier to modify an existing product than creating a totally new one, so I decided to buy it.


Here are two examples of how the shelves looks like non-modified.


I cut out the legs to make it shorter and bent the back legs.


I attached the bottom shelf to get a feeling how it would be.


Screwed the rest of the shelves on.


This is the finished result.
It turned out pretty good. It is more stable than anticipated and could maybe even hold a 42″ flatscreen.
