Ikea Expedit Bookshelf as Gorgeous Room divider


The basic shelf

Look how great it looks when you add some nice books + tchotchkes
From Domino magazine -sigh- R.I.P Domino!

In black it makes for a cozy bedroom divider

I like the drawers - good for storage

This is 2 Expediets put together. Gorgeous!

So the loft I am moving into is 945 sq. ft of completely RAW SPACE ie. no walls except for the bathroom! OY VEY - so I am on the hunt for some room dividers. I may put in some dry wall eventually but for now I think I'll use 2 or more IKEA Expedit bookshelves which I have long admired. I love their cubey graphic look and possibilities for storage.
Above are some nice examples of how they have been used as room dividers. I think they look great - and at 169.00 a pop are a very affordable solution.

So the only question is White, Black or Birch?
Whaddya think? Thanks for your input.

I say White or Birch, so it would be like a blank canvas which you can accent with pops of colours on the shelves.

White all the way! Keep the space feeling open and airy...

Jenna and I have an Expedit with the add-on desk (http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/40116070). Both in birch. We love it!

I'm going to make something like this, but covering mine in some fancy duct tape. It'll strengthen the rack and look nice :)
