Couch table with a snack drawer


This is a combination of LACK and Expedit.

Build LACK like in the manual.

For Expedit we needed more components. At first you need this here:

And we needed a wooden plank that was in the color of the Expedit. This plank should be around 35.5 cm x 35.5 cm.

And depending on floor you may need some furniture gliders (e.g. I don’t need this because I have a carpet floor). I found all these components at Ikea.

You build Expedit like in the manual with one exception. You apply the wall mount reversed and add the two extra wall mounts in the same way. In my picture I already added the visual cover of the wall mounts:



Like I said you need a plank with the measures of 35.5 cm x 35.5 cm. Like you can see on my picture I have to saw down the plank:


I’m sure you can do it better than me. :-D
Now you simply have to push it in the Expedit which can be really hard, depending on your sawing skills.



So that’s it! Maybe you wanna add a handle. There are several types at Ikea. ;-)

    Very clever. I’ve wondered if the single EXPEDIT would fit inside the legs of the LACK side table. This answers that!

    You could also use the wall mount brackets that you have re-purposed to support the bottom of your drawer as mounting brackets for casters (to make it easier to pull/push the drawer), placing the mounting brackets so that the casters barely extend below the bottom edge of the EXPEDIT.

    Good job.
