Detolf overhaul.

Detolf itself is certainly a fine piece of Swedish ingenuity. Just think about it, four pieces of tampered glass, few metal rods, chrome hinges and couple of boards made of a wooden scraps! All this for around $60, brilliant!

Wouldn’t you mind having a mirror in your Detolf, so you won’t only stare on the fronts of your figurines, Gundams or pristine Victorian pottery for what so not? I certainly wouldn’t!

So, the task at hand is to have a 360 degree view to one’s Detolf. Buying a real mirror could be costly. Besides that, regular mirrors aren’t made of tampered glass, and might brake easily.

Another way around is to use mirror-like tint film, either automotive or household.

I got mine from Home Depot for around $30 sized 3ftx15ft, plenty to cover 4 panels.


Installation is pretty much straight forward – using water/soap mixture wet both glass and film, and then using a squeegee, squeeze out the solution, adhering film to the glass.

Finally, get rid of all air bubbles and let it cure for several hours.

Final assembly.

And here it is! Mirror-like finish for less than $8. Brilliant!

  1. Nice idea! I was literally at IKEA a mere 35 minutes ago buying flooring for my new hobby room. I have been a fan of these glass cases for years, and I was looking at them tonight and while I was hugging one, hoping that my new IKEA flooring was already done, I was thinking about the back the case. That is a great idea.
