I just finished assembling my Expedit shelf from Ikea. I had been eyeing it for awhile, I wanted to put it under the window in the second bedroom/ my craft office sewing space. I don't live near an IKEA, a solid three hour travel time to get to the closest one. I was going to have it shipped to me, but holy cow, the cost was several times more than the unit was worth. I got lucky and my parents were going up to the shopping for themselves so I got free delivery! So right now I am looking at one of these!
From the very beginning I knew I wanted to add legs. I have a huge issue with furniture that sits flush against the floor. Personal preference, but I love visually having that space. I started with a few pictures for inspiration.

Not totally sure I like the legs that are used. They are very popular, but I was feeling like adding some wood legs, maybe painted with a pop of color... or gold? Not sure yet. Gotta sleep on that one. Below I have the top 4 leg options.
Right now I am leaning toward the Queen Ann inspired legs, I think I want a slightly feminine look, after all this is the one room where I can totally do whatever I want. What do you think?
