Expedit Long Bench + Cushions


Materials:  EXPEDIT Shelves and IKEA Fabric

I turned 2 EXPEDIT shelves into one long bench! I love that the bench doubles as storage for the nursery. Then used a super simple sewing technique to make cushions for the bench with IKEA fabric.

    Looks great! Is it comfortable to sit on? I’m thinking of making one, but concerned that sitting on it, people will try to put their feet in the cubbies, pushing the stuff in them out or getting it dirty. How has it worked for you?

    This is pretty neat…I think we can repurpose this idea into a bed frame.

    Wow, very useful and interesting ideas. Just right for a limited room space like ours. Thanks for sharing!
