Ikea Hacks

II love this idea seen at Apartment Therapy, and originally IKEA Hackers...the use of either an EXPEDIT or LACK bookshelf used as a bench.

Option 1: EXPEDIT Shelving Unit. $59.99
{via apartment therapy}

Option 2: LACK Shelving Unit. $79.99
 {via apartment therapy}

From what I've read, you have to add legs to the LACK shelf for extra support...not really sure why, but everyone is saying that is a necessary, every picture shows them too. However, there is no word saying that you have to add legs to the EXPEDIT shelf, and I haven't found any pictures with attached legs. 

I'm definitely considering this look for our office, and I think I'd go with the EXPEDIT shelf. It's cheaper, doesn't require legs, and I like the bigger openings for storage. This would be just perfect under the window in our office. Now just to wait for that bonus check from hubby's work...


Happy Monday! x

I like it without the legs. It looks more like a bench that way also :)

Yep, without the legs for sure.
