Expedit iTV audio corner retuned

Materials: Expedit and aluminium strip

Description: The inspiration for my hack was the Expedit Hi-Fi unit from Jon Dowland on 7 January 2012! As you all can see my Internet corner was a mess and needed a refreshment! With my Ikea Christmas tree card I bought a brown Expedit 2×2.

1: Made a top and side connection.
2: Repositioned upper divider to 45cm.
3: Added a aluminium strip for one extra shelf.
4: Drilled a few extra holes for cabling.
5: Placed on the wall and placed some equipment (audioset, vdsl modem, NAS, WD Mediacenter, 1GB Ethernet switch)

I placed it 10 cm above the ground.

    In the States there is a spare parts area in most Ikeas, next to the delivery and Item pick up counter.

    Wondering the same thing, I’d like to get my hands on some extra wood that would match the brown unit to add some shelves

  3. Adrienne Smith says:

    I really like this and think it’s very clever! Though, where did you get the extra piece of wood that’s the same color? Does IKEA sell spare shelve insert things? :) Thank you!

      Hi Adrienne/Tiffany,

      At our Ikea in Utrecht and Amsterdam there is a “koopjeshoek” where they have damaged/demo and rest/spare articles. I needed extra screws and so on…always check this corner in the Ikea and it is cheaper as a normal screwshop. I found the extra wood also there! Normale a full bag for approx between €1,50 – €5,-

      Don’t you have a “koopjeshoek” (last buy corner)?
