Description: I ask myself how to create an original 2×4 Expedit shelving unit, less expensive that the original one. So i try to join 2 small Expedit. (In France, Expedit 2×2 is 20 €, Expedit 2×4 is 55€)
To do what you see in the photos, I have to
– Fix top parts with medium plank
– Fix bottom parts with long plank (be sure you will not see middle holes)
– Fix the central parts with medium plank
– Create 2 holes in each side to “encase” the central parts
– Paint the screw in white
This is really easy to do and you can change the position of the colors.
