Materials: Expedit, 12mm ply board
Description: Ex Ikea upright Expedit hack! Turn the bookcase on its side, we had 12mm ply board that we cut to size, sanded the edges and then stained in “maple” coloured stain with a satin finish.
Then a few tubes of liquid nails spread onto the bottom sides of the stained ply and clamps to hold the ply in place on the bookcases while the glue dried.
We then fitted the legs which we brought from a recycle yard (they came with the brackets that the legs screw into).
Voilà! A new sideboard!
