Blackboard for IKEA EXPEDIT





Tafelexpedit

The idea:

A blackboard blind for my EXPEDIT shelving unit.

The material:

  • Wooden strips for the frame (2cm x 1cm x 33,5cm)
  • Board (34,5cm x 34,5cm); I used 2 boards at 34,5cm x 17,25cm
  • Glue
  • Blackboardpaint

The Tools:

  • Saw (even better: miter saw)
  • Clamps
  • Sandpaper or file
  • Paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. Build a frame matching the IKEA EXPEDIT shelf.
  2. Glue the board(s) on the frame. The board has to be slightly larger than your frame.
  3. Paint the board with the blackboardpaint. Usually you’ll need two or three coats. Use sandpaper to smooth the final coat.
  4. Use your new blackboard blind on your IKEA EXPEDIT shelving unit.
