IKEA Expedit Hack: A Chalkboard Miracle by Ironandtwine
Step right up, folks, and witness the IKEA hack so brilliant even a measurement mishap couldn’t derail it!
In this corner, we have Ironandtwine, who transformed the humble Expedit into a fabulous, functional family command center.
Ready to be inspired?
Let’s dive in!
Once upon a time, Ironandtwine planned to purchase three Expedit shelving units for that pesky empty space behind the front door.
Alas, a 5-inch miscalculation left them in a pickle. But fear not, for creativity triumphed! By turning the end unit 90 degrees, this once-doomed project became a custom IKEA masterpiece.
Now, let’s talk chalk(board)!
With trusty 3M ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape, some old CDs for rounding corners, and a few coats of chalkboard spray paint, Ironandtwine transformed a blank side into a message center fit for royalty (or, you know, busy families).
But wait, there’s more!
