This hack has been done a 100 times but I am going to make it 101! And I am going to include some step by step action AND an orange dinosaur pinata! Take that hackers!
This lovely Expedit shelving unit was bought from Senor Craigslist himself for a mere $20. If you live in a fairly metro area near an Ikea you can almost always find some kind of Expedit piece on Senor Craigslist.
I bought 2 sets of Capita 8" legs (4/pack) for $14 each.
I laid out where I wanted the legs to go. I was only planning to use six of the legs. But, I knew there was a chance I might use the finished product as a window seat. So, I threw the other two on for a bit more stability.
I marked where the screws needed to go with a Sharpie then I moved the metal plate.
I didn't feel like getting a drill bit. So, I used the screws as the drill bit. I screwed each one into its place then unscrewed those suckas right out of there.
I screwed the plates into place, attached the legs and wa-la! Finito!
You've seen her (Mrs. Ex-Pita) pop up in Cora's nursery as a window seat. She lived there for about a month while the room was still in the "throw all the extra furniture in there and see what works"phase.
Mrs. Ex-Pita finally found a place to live as a coffee table in the funky retro bonus room. But I can't show you that yet because we are still counting down the chronicles to the big reveal!
And now the Would You Rather of the day!
WYR... go 8 years without eating any ice cream
have to keep your fingernails ridiculously pointed for 3 weeks (like the ones pictured below but without the fancy design or the bedazzling)?
