Here's what I did to customize my IKEA Detolfs to get the most bang for my buck!
Shave the sides and put two (2) of them together - instant custom glass display case for around $140 each!
Here's pictures of how I put it together:
I sawed off the edge of the Detolf boards before putting them together:
I drilled holes and used mending plates, bolts, nuts, and washers to hold the two pieces:
Here's what the bottom side looks like:
. . . . and now, [I'm] putting in the frame for the Detolf:
Add the glass sides, doors, and top pieces!
Top bolted together just like the bottom pieces:
See how small the gap is now between the doors in the front? I can [now] barely stick my finger through, whereas I could fit my whole hand into the original frame [before]:
Now all of my Detolfs stacked side by side in pairs:
Here's a [photo] after I added all the mending plates to all my Detolfs and bolted down the Detolfs to the wall using shelf brackets:
. . . . and now my display room today!
