With some IKEA Effektiv shelving and Ritva cushions, you can make a cheap hallway bench that provides a place to sit and some extra storage as well.
What you'll need:
- Effektiv low add-on unit and shelf
- Effektiv plinth
- Ritva cushions
- Electric drill
Assembling the bench isn't much different than assembling an Effektiv shelving unit, as IKEA hacker Nanners explains:
Instead of assembling the plinth on the base of the Effektiv cabinet, which would've made the bench too high to sit on comfortably, I drilled pilot holes in the top of the cabinet and mounted the plinth as shown. Two Ritva cushions finish the bench. It provides the perfect height and support for both me and my 6 foot, 280-pound husband, and holds up to 8 pairs of shoes.
If you're in need of a hallway bench and some extra storage, this is a cheap and easy way to get both.
