Upcycled Expedit

I saw this picture on pinterest and love the way this Ikea Expedit bookcase has be upcycled to look like a piece of unique vintage furniture.

I can't believe I never realised you could buy add ons for the Expedit range like drawer and door units and castors. I have this exact style of unit but in the beech veneer and was thinking of selling it on ebay but having seen this alternative use I love it. All I need is some interesting drawer knobs and and a lick of a nice farrow and ball paint colour, next project sorted.

Have any of you upcycled your Ikea furniture, if so let me know and I'll add them to this post.

  1. what a lovely idea - i'm moving soon and was thinking of chucking my ikea draws - but this is a much cheaper and more fun option!
