Learn how to make your own home-office, back to school, or homeschool organizer with this easy DIY Ikea Kallax Shelf hack. The DIY built-in inserts are perfect for organizing paper and folders.
STEP 1 – PREP
Scuff the entire surface with a fine-grit sanding sponge. Clean up all the dust with a tack cloth.
STEP 2 – BUILD IKEA KALLAX DIVIDERS
Rip up the ½” plywood into supports for the dividers. Attach the dividers onto the cubbies using a strong adhesive and hold in place with clamps while it dries.
STEP 3 – PAINT
Paint the final colors. Apply at least 2 coats.
To add a little unexpected twist, I wrapped the color around to the sides and added a little “mural”.
