Ikea Kallax Shelving Unit Turned “Surf Shack”

Ikea Kallax Shelf turned Surf Shack

With my kids back to school already I’m hoping to find the time to share some of the home projects we’ve been working on lately. This summer we swam almost every day, and it made moving back to the extreme heat better!


I was also excited that moving back to Phoenix meant I get Ikea back! Hooray.

While I was there, I came up with the idea to look for something I could store all of our pool towels, swim suits, goggles, and sunscreen all in one spot by the sliding glass backyard door. This is my solution to my kids and hubby yelling for towels and “Where’s my goggles and snorkel?”.

  1. I love this idea! I just purchased this same shelving unit from IKEA and I’m currently searching for baskets. Can you share where you purchased your baskets from?
