Spin it with some colour

A dash of colour adds some zing to the Expedit. Steve's Expedit vinyl station is definitely looking hot.

He says, "I've put this together over the last few weeks. It's an Expedit bookshelf that's modified for use as my turntable listening station. I ordered fire engine red contact vinyl from Ebay and covered the inner shelves (my skills from years of gripping skateboards came in handy). The lights are Ikea Dioders (I still have to clean up the wiring) and those are 6" Capita legs on the bottom. I'm pretty happy with it.

The only thing I'd do differently the next time around is to use automotive grade vinyl rather than contact paper vinyl. The heavy automotive vinyl is a little more difficult to cut but it'll hold up better over time and is available in many different colors.

Totally unrelated to Ikeahacking but I've just started a mini site where I post up things I find interesting, intriguing or catches my eye. It could be an item from a designer friend, stuff I pick up on my travels or at my local flea market. I won't be posting there regularly, only when I find something interesting that I offer to Ikeahacker readers at a good price. I'm very happy to post this first item which is a wall decal from a designer friend, whom I really want to support. Hop over for a peek.
