    but it hardly does them justice.

    There are a wide variety of box sizes that lock together on top of eachother and you can build a custom set of drawers. I snapped a few pics of mine.

    Anyone else got these?
    I really like them so far. I like that they're slightly translucent so I can enjoy my pretty stuff even though it's packed away. And I like having drawers now instead of lided boxes. 0_0

    ETA: The biggest ones fit 12 x 12 sheets if you're into that.

    I was looking at them last time I was at Ikea, but wasn't sure. Are they sturdy enough?

    WOW, thanks for this NinaC. Checked IKEA here in Iceland and they have those drawers. I'm off to check them out :-)

    @zgagi: the boxes themselves are very sturdy. It's hard plastic.

    but the way they're attached to eachother isn't particularly sturdy. they're only attached at the back with small connectors. I don't think they're meant to be moved around a whole lot, unless you got the casters. the instructions also recommends not stacking higher than 21".

    I dunno if that recommendation goes for wall-mounted drawers, though.
