Description: This hack makes an awesome storage unit plus play space for kids.
We put together two Expedit Shelving Units, as per the instructions. Then we screwed them together using plates, three under the unit, three on the underside of the top. After trimming, and painting the top (Martha Stewart’s Talc), we screwed it in place. Voila, a useful play table that should hold every one of your child’s toys.
