    How do you make the ikea shelves? Did you use a 2×2 bookshelf and hack it? I can’t figure it out. :) Love the pop of pink!

  • Andrea Schaaf

    Can u explain how u did the bookshelf bench area? I can’t find anything at ikea.

  • Rachel

    I’m in the same boat as Cassie and Holly! I looked at IKEA and could not figure out how you did the 2×2 bookshelf/bench. Could you elaborate on that?

  • Wendy

    I would really really love to know where you got the bookshelf/bench because this is exactly what I want to do in my back foyer.

    @rachel @wendy @disqus_FmoIEeiJnK:disqus @holly — Look up the Ribba picture ledge on Ikea’s website for the wall book shelves. Not sure if this is what she used but the closest i could find.

    With a little research, I think the 1×2 bench/cubby thing is no longer available. There are multiple “pins” with Ikea Expedit products like the ones shown in the picture, however, they no longer make “expedit”, they have revised that line and it is now called Kallax (that is supposed to be more child friendly with rounded corners and more scratch resistant), however, they didn’t carry all of the expedit products over to the new line so i’m guessing this 1×2 bench got lost in that transition which is a real bummer.
    here is Ikea’s statement:

    Kelsi- You are pretty much right on. I used the longest ribba picture ledge.

    As far as the cubbies, it was two of the 1×2 shelves. We just turned one on its side and made a cushion for the long side
