Secret Passage and Fort for Kids Using Expedit Bookcase and Desk
Description: I recently redid my little boy’s room. Like everyone, we didn’t want to spend a lot of money, yet wanted something that would last into his teenage years.
We decided to purchase the Expedit bookcase and desk since they would grow with him. When he’s an adolescent, he’ll actually be able to use the desk as a desk, but while he’s a toddler, the bookcase serves as a
toy/book organizer as well as a secret passage into his fort which is actually the area under the desk.
To create the fort, I took a shower curtain rod and a sheet to make the curtain that hangs under the desk. We added a rope light for a few bucks underneath and our little man loves it.
