Modern Expedit to Vintage Printer’s Cabinet
I love the look of those vintage printers drawer units. But, who actually has a bunch of flat things to store?! I already had a couple Expedit units in white and decided “what better way to break in my new miter saw but an Ikea hack on these buggers?!”
I framed out the Expedit units with 1×3′s adding an additional 1×4 on the bottom to help make the measurements fit better.
I made 14 cuts of 1x4s and attached them together with a 1×2 strips on the back side to create the look of drawers, but actually creating a large door.
I attached the door to the framed out Expedit units
I used cup pulls on each of the slats of 1x4s to add to the look of many drawers
