    A friend of mine has moved and given me his monitor that he doesn’t need anymore and I would like to make use of his monitor and make a dual monitor setup. But the problem is with the Micke corner workstation there’s not enough room to put another monitor because of the side columns. At the moment my monitor sits in the middle and has a 20 inch x 14.5 inch dimension. My friend’s monitor is 17.5 x 14. I’m hoping there’s a Ikea Hacker out there that’s able to find a solution to this since it does seem neat to have dual monitors and not have to buy a whole new…

    Materials: RAST dresser When I created the concept for my tool closet makeover, I knew I needed small drawers to hold all the small screws and bits required for a well-outfitted tool closet. The idea of apothecary chest immediately came to mind. I would’ve liked to have found the real deal at a flea market, but since I didn’t, I built them myself. To complete the “wall” of apothecary drawers in my tool closet, I made over this Ikea Rast dresser to finish the look.

    Materials: Hemnes Shoe Cabinet x2 The Hemnes collection from Ikea was the perfect option for our front entrance which lacks a ‘proper’ entrance equipped with a sunken level, tile floor or even a shoe/coat closet. Since we had enough room for two, that’s what I went with. More storage = more shoes! But having two of them required a bit of ‘hacking’ to set them up side by side. Because the top shelf has a bit of an overhang, you have to cut one sided of both units to prevent there from being a gap between them. After completely assembling one unit, and leaving the…

    For Sleepopolis regular readers you may already know that Tuft & Needle hasn’t always been one of my favorite mattresses. A little over 6 months ago I was in the market for a new mattress and a co-worker of mine recommended I give the Tuft & Needle a try, which I did.

The mattress at the time was quite simply too firm for my back. However, Tuft & Needle has been on the warpath these last 6 months and their mattress and…
