IKEA hackers Fabiana and Massimo turned a cheap solar lamp from IKEA—the SUNNAN—and recycled wood into a jewellery display case. You could adapt this ingenious idea to showcase your collectibles or decorative items.

Using a solar panel not only eliminates the need to hide an unsightly electric cord, it also makes the case ideal for showcasing your special creations in locations without outlets—e.g., at craft fairs, flea markets, or perhaps just your backyard. Photo by Fabiana and Massimo.
