Description: In my case I bought the Expedit to use as an extension of the kitchen cabinet since we didn’t have a lot of storage space for dinnerware. The problem was that the dust was covering all the plates and glasses so I decided we need to cover some of the shelves.
I went to a hardware store and bought small pieces of plywood sheathing (the small leftovers are really cheap) and I asked them to cut them about an inch bigger than the holes of the furniture. I also picked a bunch of regular hinges, in my case the darker the better so they don’t stand out too much, and four different handles just for fun.
I sanded the 4 pieces of plywood sheathing very well and then applied 2 thick coats of acrylic white paint. When the second coat was still wet I made the lines with a pencil, since the wood is irregular it’s easy to make them crooked and the effect it’s less rigid and boring. Afterwords, I applied one extra coat of acrylic protector.
The last part was the difficult one, to measure the exact point where to engage the doors so they all be aligned.
