How To Close the Back of an Expedit

Good Questions

Q: We have a set of Ikea Expedit shelves in our son's room. (Doesn't everyone?) The open backs make it a little tough for him to put away books, since they tend to just slide right out the back. Does anyone have guidance on how exactly to close out the back?

Editor: This is a great question and we really hope there are some readers out there who have done this and can drop some wisdom on us and Betsy.
