DIY Expedit "doors"

Materials: Ikea Expedit shelves, 12inch square canvas, hardware

Description: What You Need:

1.) 12 inch square canvases.
2.) 2 eye hooks for every canvas.
3.) 2 hooks for every canvas.

How To Make It:

1.) Measure 1 inch from the left and right edges of the top of each canvas. Make a mark.

2.) Screw in the eye hooks in where you just marked.

3.) Repeat for each canvas.

4.) Hold the canvas up to the Expedit cubby. Once centered, mark the holes about 1/2 inch from the front of the bookcase, so the canvas sits in a little.

5.) Screw the hooks into the bookcase. Be sure they face out.

6.) Hang canvases. Done!

    I agree with Donna in that the canvas offers a way to add some colour if you wish (I rather like the white). I also like the space around the canvas, it allows for you to be able to lift the canvas to reach behind. Very creative and simple hack. Thank you

    I like that you thought outside the ‘box’ for this project. The canvas offers tons of creative options for anyone to splash color, or not. I also like the space around the canvas as the door looks like it’s floating. Great idea. :)
