EXPEDIT drop leaf table: Texas style - IKEA Hackers

EXPEDIT drop leaf table: Texas style


Materials: EXPEDIT, LACK, contact paper, sliding rails, hinges

Started off with this


Got some contact paper from Home Depot for around $8.00. PANYL has better colors but I went the more affordable route.

After an hour or two of cutting and smoothing out the bubbles…


Had to add some doors for the full effect.


Went to Ikea the next day and picked up a Lack side table. They were out of the regular white so I had to opt for the fancy gloss white.



Connected the hinges to the bottom of the middle shelf, then installed sliding drawer rails underneath to brace the table upright.

Had to add some personal flavor to it.

Keeping a reminder of home as a TX to LA Transplant.
