Hi guys!
I am not sure where to ask this, but this seemed like a good place to start.
We wan to use an IKEA Expedit as a room divider and organizer. BUT it is a safety hazard. Has anyone done this? How exactly to we secure it so our toddler doesn't topple it over? Just to clarify, this will be in the middle of a room and not against a wall...

The expedits actually come with the hardware to attach them to the wall It's an L shaped bracket that you screw into the top of the bookshelf (on the end if you're using it as a divider) and then screw into the wall on the other section. It has a beige 'cover' to hide a bit of the ugly We had ours as a room divider for ages, and bracketed to the wall, and it never so much as budged (despite 3 boys bangin' and clangin' around and into it lol)

Pagan  lovin'  WOW playing mum to 5 boys in the wonderful land of Oz ... FOR THE HORDE! hehehe
