Picture of Hide your messy bookshelf with ikea panels
The purpose of this project is to build some cheap, light and removable panels to hide a messy bookshelf or use as a door.
This instructable can also be used to build a paint from a good designed fabric

NEW: I published the instructable of the whole attic

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
  • Meter
  • White or transparent Silicone glue
  • 'U' shaped aluminium bars
  • White alveolar polypropyllene (plexiglass)
  • Cutter and scissors
  • ikea fabric (it's very cheap! about 4 euros for square meter)
  • staples gun (manual)
  • tape


This is really great. I try to keep my bookshelves clean and chic, but I have some where the books are just overflowing and this will be perfect for them. Thank you!

hey schamaroochie ;0) I go to Ikea about four times a year.  If you let me know what fabric you would like, i can ship it to you.

I crave these fabrics.  Now I have to hire a car to get all the way across the bay just to get to an IKEA!  They won't sell it online!  (yes, I checked)  Great inspiration.
