Expedit/Cubes Bar table

Materials: Expedit Shelving Unit, Capita Brackets, 3 Way basics Cubes (non-Ikea), Vika Glasholm table top

Description: This table was inspired by other Expedit Bar table hacks posted on this website.

I first secured the capita brackets to the glass top with epoxy and then to the Expedit shelving unit.

I was going to use vika series leg for the other side, but since there was none that could extend to this height, I replaced the right sides with 3 Way Basics cubes stacked together.

I also installed the INREDA glass rack on one of the Expedit unit to put my wine glasses. :)

    How did you install the INREDA?

    • SAK says:

      When you buy INREDA, there is instruction that comes with it. Ideally, you would install it before you assemble the Expedite shelves. But I had to drill the holes upward for the screws that hold the wine rack.
