Make A DIY TV Stand With An IKEA Expedit

The IKEA Expedit bookshelf is very versatile. We already knew you could turn it into bed platforms, benches and storage tables. Turns out, it forms the basis of an excellent TV stand.

The folks at IKEA Hackers show us that with the addition of some wood from pallets and a little rope, the Expedit makes a rather attractive TV stand that combines a little bit of modern with a little bit of rustic. They removed the two centre shelves, flipped the bookshelf horizontally, added feet, and repurposed wood from pallets to make box drawers. Simple, attractive and functional. What more could you ask?
