instant fence from IKEA!

Post by daveyrd11 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 2:36 pm

If like me you like quick and easy results, this could be just the thing!
IKEA sell a product called HOFTA it's designed for creating drawer separators, however, it makes great instant fencing!

thanks for letting me know it looks very good (especially if you paint them a creamy colour or something)

Nice. Although they want to call it - roughly - after the swedish for "hip" (as in bone), defeats me. :shock:

That does look good. Trouble is it means going to I bloody kea to buy it.

Polythene type soft plastic? Or something stronger?

Yes, it is a slightly soft plastic, you can cut it to length using scissors. i think it'll take paint quite well if primed first.

Helpful money and sanity saving advice regarding Ikea.

The last time I went to Ikea I had to make use of my 'Emergency Credit Card'. This is a wonderful piece of kit and very simple. All you need to do is keep any credit or debit card that has been damaged and no longer works. Keep it hidden in your wallet and when the time comes to pay for something that you do not want, just attempt to use it and low and behold "Sorry dear there must be a problem with the bank account/pay not gone in/etc etc."
Result - no flat pack furniture assembly.

Sorry to move off topic but I feel this bit of advice is needed if any of you Gentlemen end up going to Ikea with the family to buy the item. Just make sure you have just enough pound notes to pay for them.
If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer!

Big Jim, you are a genius!

I forgot to say, the instant fence costs £2.50 for 3 meters! So it's a bit of a bargain.
Just avoid the other areas of the store!
