super simple expedit rails





eloisa and jeff sent me this super simple hack.

“we’ve been renovating a small building to use as our office/playroom, and we’ve got a loft space. real rails are very pricey, so by putting 3 expedit low shelves costing us 47 euros, we’ve covered 4.5m of rail, plus extra storage!”

a lovely idea.

    I’m worried that some of the stuff might fall out the back and land on the people below! How about drilling some holes and threading a rope through the side to prevent stuff from falling out?

    I think a (plexi)glass back covering would be nicer than a thread to prevent things from falling out.

    Then again… what are the chances of someone dawdling underneath when you accidentally push something through?

    Perhaps some recycled window screen?

    Perhaps mesh window scren dicretely stapled to the outside would provide appropriate prevention without being visually arresting?
