Expedit Coffee Bar
Materials: CAPITA, EXPEDIT
This is a simple mod to create a small coffee bar out of an Ikea Expedit rack.
I covered the desk with an 1 mm aluminium sheet, also the border is enhanced with an rectangular aluminium stripe. Everything is glued directly to the rack’s surface in order to avoid screw holes.
The coffee maker is placed on a more ergonomic level.
The lighting is made of an acrylic white plastic and a RGB led stripe. I bought 4 pieces of wood in the local home store, already cut to 33,5×33,5cm. I used my jigsaw to cut holes in each one, glued the LEDs to the wood using hot glue and assembled everything.
