Cubical storage from IKEA

Some years ago, we used to stock at the shop these storage cubes.

They were made of heavy plywood and you could mistake them for solid wood if it weren't for the cross section on the rim.
They were basically meant to be used as shelving in kids' rooms.
They were very practical as one could stash them and move them around or add to them as a child grew.
Though we do not stock them any more, I found a similar product that could be used in a similar context


recently spotted  the PRÄNT storage untits by IKEA. They are originally made to hold magazines and other sofa-side parafernalia, but look at this interpretation I found.
The  PRÄNT range consists of four different box shapes which makes it easy to build up
an irregular storage compound, one of the strong shelving trends right now.

Our range came ready painted, but as is the case with many IKEA products, the  PRÄNT cubes come unfinished, which is a goos thing if you are willing to get a little paint in your nails, as you may customise them to suit your room's palette.

 In these pictures you can see that the inside of the crates is painted in soft pastel shades.

In order to bring stability to the units, you can attach the boxes both
horizontally and vertically with simple stationary black metal clamps.

In the US they retail at $6.99 which makes them worth a try!
