If you're tired of seeing all the audio-video related clutter under your television you can easily camouflage it with this simple hack, keeping it both easily accessible but out of sight.
IKEAhacker reader Torbjørn Vatn, hailing from Norway, wrote in with a clever hack for hiding away audio-video equipment and giving his media centre a more polished look in the process. He writes:
Materials: Lack bedside table, some 15x15mm wood, speaker cloth, four small cabinet door magnets
Description: 1) Make a wooden frame to match the inner measurements of the Lack bedside table.
2) Measure out and add the magnets.
3) Stretch speaker cloth over the frame.
You could easily adopt the design to fit different sized cabinets and spaces. He used cabinet latches for the magnetic part of the frame, they're easy to mount and more than strong enough to hold up a simple wooden frame with fabric stretched over it. Check out the article at IKEAhacker for a closer look at the backside of the panel and how he mounted the magnetic latches.
