I love furniture with fresh crisp lines, so when we purchased Ikea's Kallax a few years ago, I knew it would fit perfectly in any room of our home. It's a very versatile piece of furniture that you can customize to your liking. You can add doors which we will most likely do in the future, there are several colors to choose from, and can be used either vertical or horizontal. Ikea pieces are always my favorite because you can put your finishing touch on them and make them your own. This was a $20 upgrade that instantly turned this kallax shelf into a mid century masterpiece.
One thing I didn't like about our Kallax was how low it was. It definitely didn't looked finished, so we decided to add legs. The legs not only make it look like a completely different piece, but added the height that it was missing in our daughters room. I love them unfinished, but you could stain or paint them based on your decor.
