Hack an IKEA Picture Ledge Into a Tool Rack

By Jason Fitzpatrick on March 6th, 2012

This clever hack turns a picture ledge into a vertical screw driver rack and a hanging rail, intended for kitchen use, into a perfect station for hanging tools.

IKEAHacker reader Christian used a RIBBA picture ledge for the left hand rack seen in the photo above and a BYGEL rail for the right hand one. To turn the picture ledge into a screw driver holder he simply drilled a series of holes along it, allowing the screw drivers to slip in. The BYGEL rail was an ever easier adaptation, he bought it as is (along with some S-hooks) and simply hung tool on it.
