Lekman cover up

Genna who is one of the Kitchen and Dining co-workers at Ikea Houston (hello to all you guys out there!) glams up the Lekman box. Nice touch.

“This one is pretty straight forward. I have an Expedit tv unit but needed closed storage. I didn’t want to spend a lot and so the Lekman box was the best price. Although, the Lekman by itself is not the best looking thing. So, I took some spray adhesive and some wrapping paper from the Container Store and covered just the fronts. Hope you like them.”

    Great idea! We have an Expedit unit languishing in our closet for storage, but when we have the space to move it to actual living quarters, I think I’ll use this idea to dress up the bright red plastic Lekmans.
