IKEA Furniture Hacks – Variera

The IKEA Variera is an all purpose bamboo box, with a handle. With Furniture legs we turn this into a Magazine Rack or bathroom storage unit.


In this IKEA furniture hack we transform the IKEA Variera into a classic Magazine rack. When adding the Legheads Barcelona M8 IKEA furniture legs to the Ikea Variera, it transforms into the perfect magazine rack or bathroom storage unit. This is one of the easiest Ikea furniture hacks EVER!

Magazine racks are almost from another era so it is time to bring them back. I love this hack it is so simple, very cheap and looks classy. Aside from a magazine rack, it can be used as a TP holder in the bathroom, and a retail display rack for food and knick knacks.

This hack is so easy we can recommend it for kids (with adult supervision). The only power tool you use is the drill. You do not need to screw the attachment plate on to the base as it uses the furniture leg hanger bolt to secure itself.

This IKEA hack took about 15 minutes to do.
