expedit with a twist

This beautiful IKEA hack popped up on my Pinterest feed yesterday. It is three 1 x 4 Expedit shelves, with one turned to the side. The shelves were a few inches too wide for the space, so they rotated the end unit to fit. What a happy accident! I adore the shape of the blackboard.

 This whole little nook is really cute--I love the clean styling and the neutral textures.

Well aren't they clever! :) I agree the whole nook is ideal, and the chalkboard design is my favorite too. Thanks for finding this and sharing.

How clever! I love the simplicity of the boxes and baskets on the shelves too...gives everything such a clean look! I'm in the process of decorating a new office and I'm definitely pinning this as inspiration! Xo, Katie
