Who has some IKEA Detolf Shelves? Post pics so I can get ideas for a cool display.

I just stick stuff in it but I'm sure there is a better way.

This is one I found online and is kind of what I might do unless I find a better way.

why don't you post pics of your shelves so we can see what kind of things you want to display. like are the things big or small, have a common theme or random things from various movies. it would help to see what you have.

Random stuff mostly. I'll take a pic of what I have later tonight. Mostly a mix of helmets, models, light sabers, 3A toys etc.

Keep in mind that the shelves are not adjustable and some larger helmets will not fit, like the Rubies Supreme Vader. But a good value for an outstanding shelf.

I use 4 steel wire clamps (6mm) per shelf (fastened on the vertical posts) to place the shelf at every height I wish. A lot of people do so.

Those clamps are a good idea. I saw a guy modify it another way which looked pretty good.

Here is my mod to add an additional shelf to my Ikea Detolf.

I used:
8-32 threaded rod cut to 12.75"
Nylon L brackets
Nylon cylinders
8-32 nuts
Glass or Plexiglas cut to 15" x 11.5"

I got everything at Lowes, but they are common parts to any hardware store.


Attach the threaded rod with the L brackets as shown. The little cylinders are to keep the glass off the threads, but are not essential.
