Description: I transformed a Expedit shelving unit in a desk with a lateral horizontal shelving unit.
I disassembled the long side of Expedit.
I took off the central shelves in order to make the space for the legs (human legs).
I took the central vertical piece of wood and I cut (at a DIY Shop) two pieces large 5cm. I cut the lateral part of the piece, that has the four holes to put the nails.
I assembled the two 5cm piece to the two “short legs” of the desk in order to have the same height of the the main legs.
I put the remained long side of Expedit on four boxes in order to make a lateral shelf that goes from the desk to the bed (it was necessary in order to have also a place to put my hand made night lamp.
