Expedit/Ekby Mudroom Locker


Materials: 10x Drona boxes, 2x Expedit 1×5 units, 4x Ekby Laiva shelves, 5x Ekby Amund shelves

I wanted a built in locker look without the pricetag. After a bit of measuring and some surfing on the Ikea website I found my answer with some Expedit units and a few Ekby shelves. The bottom unit is set up on a 2×4 base to create a toe kick, which we covered with molding. The Ekby Amund shelves were cut to height and set into the Expedit using dowels but also secured to the wall with brackets. We drilled holes for shelf pegs to rest the Ekby Laiva shelves on for extra shoe storage.


Each family member gets three hooks for hanging items and the a top and bottom bin used for seasonal items (gloves, bike helmets etc.) The bins are rotated down to the bottom depending on the current season. One extra bin top and bottom is used for miscellaneous items.

It turned out exactly as I envisioned and functions perfectly, having been in use for an entire year now.
