Hacking a sad white EXPEDIT with PALLETS!


Materials: EXPEDIT and DIODER

Description: Hey guys! Here’s my latest work, the base is (again) a sad white IKEA’s Expedit cabinet hacked with pallets.

I’ve suspended it, drilled and cut in different points to hide wires and added a colored IKEA’s LED stripe to get an even cooler look!

Due to its irregular surface to keep it clean I’ve topped it with a 6 mm thick laser cut PVC cover sheet that works just fine for what I had in my mind, it shows perfectly what’s below it and add value to its shades.


I’ve had so much fun with this project beside the boring part of dismantling and cleaning the pallets from which it’s made of ;-)

    Quick question — how did you affix the pallet wood to the hollow particleboard frame of the expedit? I’ve been thinking about re-veneering some ikea furniture myself and one thought is rather than sand & glue, just screwing thin stock on the outside.
