Materials: Expedit, Expedit doors and drawers, Vika Amon table top, Capita, 4 baskets to use as drawers, a piece of MDF, white paint and cute doorknobs
Description: My husband and I live in a very small place, so we need all the storage space we can create. That is why we build an Expedit kitchen bar. It is perfect as a breakfast and dinner table and also creates loads of storage space in the kitchen.
Description: Step 1. Put the Expedit together. Step 2. Screw the Capitas on Expedit. Step 3. Screw the Vika Amon table top on the Expedit. Step 4. Put in all the Expedit doors and drawers. Step 5. Make sure the MDF board is the right size, then paint it in the same color as the Expedit. Step 6. Put the MDF board on the Expedit with a lot of small nails, using a hammer. Paint the nails when done. Step 7. Find yourself fitting baskets to use as drawers. Step 8. I didn’t like the Ikea doorknobs, so I replaced them with little stones.
