Custom Expedit

Materials: Expedit 4×2

Description: First of all I decided to hang my Expedit, in spite of Ikea’s advise (the say NO for hanging Expedit). I made additional supporting beam under it (one of the pics shows this).

The second, I bought and customized standard doors and chests for Expedit, in the way they correspond to my room decor. Here is you can see navy-blue painted and varnished door, two chests covered with fabric and varnished and the last door made with the 100-year-old music sheet (decoupage technique. I also added open-close mechanism from Besta.

    Minimal would be if they had left it all white with no doors or drawers. This is not minimal, it is however a nice combination of colors and texture. Good job.
