DIY Kids Lab Table: Ikea Hack
In a Previous post (ikea-hack-dry-erase-wall-for-kids-room), I dismantled an expedit unit from Ikea and created a fun dry erase wall for the kids playroom. I still had another piece of the unit to use so I created this fun lab table.
This is the expedit Unit I used. The long part of the unit was the perfect length for our window lab table. The surface of the unit is perfect for cleaning up all of our messy science experiments. And it gets messy! This table surface is perfect for kid play.
For the table legs, I used these Ikea Besta shelves. They gave me the perfect height for the table and they fit perfectly with the width of Ikea shelf. I added shelves on the inside openings of the Besta to create more storage. I had to cut the shelf down to fit the space and I drilled new holes to support the shelves. The shelves that came with the Besta would not work because I turned the Besta unit around to give the height.
