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.

  1. Susan Duality says:

    Expedit owners! Beware of KALLAX door inserts. They are completely redesigned. They no longer slide in. Insert’s thin panel opposite the door needs 2 screws to stay in place, the door uses 4. The inside of Expedit’s vertical dividers will be completely disfigured, and too close to the front edge to hide. Plus there’s a .25″ gap on 2 sides. You cannot move them to a different hole or remove them as your life and needs change.
