Ikea Expedit Bench Hack – Shabby Chic

ikeabenchhackHere is the bench seating I have created in a corner of my living room. It is an IKEA ‘Expedit’ Hack. Note: In 2015 Ikea renamed ‘Expedit’ to ‘Kallax’.

The bench consists of a combination of IKEA Expedit shelf units (a 5x1unit and 3 single units…which have now been discontinued) – the storage boxes are also from IKEA (Drona). The bench cushion was made by my brother (who is very nifty on a sewing machine) – The fabric is Clarke & Clarke.

My brother also made the cushion covers.
