I pretty much did what others did with the expedit/kallax units. I also split the expedit drawer in half. I also cut some piece of the inreda glass to make it fit into the smaller besta shelves units with a little tool bought at HD.

As you guys can see on the picture for the Kallax 2×2 i didnt use one of the side so that i can still use the fourth cases from the 2×4. The whole thing was all connected with some metal plates from HD.


Other than that the hardest part of the whole built was to put the Guinness decal.

      I am the one who made this hack. i didnt put too many info because i think the picture speak for themselves but here are some more details.

      the front of the bar is made out of the Kallax, there is some drilling need to fit the top counter. For the L shape of the front i used a 2×2 kallax but i didnt not use one of the side.

      For the decal what you need is buy the decal, buy vinyl decal and also you need some composite board that you can find at any hardware store, you can also use metal sheet what ever is better for you. If i had to redo again probable invest in some metal sheet would be better.
      Then you need some L bracket to connect the front face of the bar to the kallax.

      All the besta stuff is against the wall. and with the extra piece of the kallax that i didnt use i put it at the corner between the 2×2 and the besta.

      if you have more question let me know.

        Could you tell me which IKEA product did you use for the shelf on the top of the counter with the decal? I’m looking for a shelf to put on the top of my “IKEA bar” but I didn’t find yet.

        Many thanks in advance ;)

          I dont remember the name of it but if you are talking about the board on top of the angled capita leg, it is just a board for book shelf. browse a little at the store you will find it. I believe it was this INREDA : 501.965.42 but it is not available on the website anymore might be discontinued.
