IKEA Expedit, Rejiggered

IKEA Hackers

Our love for the IKEA Expedit (our workhouse in kids' rooms) knows no bounds. Each square opening presents a display and storage opportunity, and is what makes it so appealing. But what if were rejiggered?We spotted this Expedit on IKEA Hackers. It had been hacked by its owner so that the uniform square openings are now thin and fat rectangles, perfect for display of items that may not have fit previously. With this simple change, a hacked Expedit can also be turned 90 degrees so that the shelves run horizontally. And don't overlook the fact that this unit has been mounted to the wall. If you're interested in all the details of how to pull off this hack, check out IKEA Hackers.
