Storage: The Ikea Brewery
« on: April 06, 2018, 09:12:06 am »
Doing some spring cleaning and getting organized in the brewery! I saw some storage options in IKEA when I was in Chicago, and decided to upgrade from the folding table I've been using. Unfortunately, they didn't quite have enough bits to make it as large as I wanted.



Ive got some space to hang hoses to dry, on the pegboard and off to the side. Everything is consolidated, from the workshop, garage, and laundry room into a dedicated room that happens to have a washer and dryer. The drawers aren't full depth unfortunately, but they do a good job of holding a scale and a few other small bits I want on hand. Hopefully I can get the table out of there soon.

A few notes:
  • The pegboard feels like its epoxy coated, so moisture shouldn't be a problem
  • Shelf is stained with exterior stain to keep a matte finish and avoid peeling
  • Shelving is the modular Ivar system, and the pegboard is the Skadis system. They have some nice little bins for small things.
  • The drawers can have the front angled out, or vertical like a normal drawer. Not sure which one I prefer right now.

I love seeing how people hack IKEA furniture. Looks great!

I love it. This gives me an idea for a piece of furniture I should modify. Don't tell my wife. lol

Do you by any chance know why these images stopped loading? To be more precise, the pictures that the user BrewBama uploaded work fine without any problems, but images from user Wilbur are not loaded. And I can't figure out, is this a problem with my browser or a problem with this forum? Sorry to bring up such an old topic. I just can't understand why pictures don't work. This is not the first time this has happened, and for some reason, this phenomenon occurs precisely when I read something interesting. For example, last week, I read an article about a similar service as reupholstery.nyc, which deals with furniture restoration. The article was fascinating, but none of the 20 pictures had loaded.

Probably because they are links and the photos that the links point to are no longer there.

The pegboard works well in a wet environment.  I installed on in my daughter's college apartment bathroom and it worked well for three years.  Still in good shape (she is using still, after she graduated.)
