Coffee table advance

Malm Storage Unit, Galant Monitor Stand

Description: Only a little hack ;)

The Malm Storage Unit is perfect to hide things like the TV guides, bottle opener, the reserve of sweets, … but they are not big enough for a coffee table. So I have expanded it with a Galant Monitor Stand and 3 short table-legs. To stop the stand from slipping I used double-sided adhesive tape (the black under the table-legs).

    where are the table legs from?

    Yes, I understand it is the height that they wanted to improve.

    Nice solution!

    I had the same question. Maybe the person is referring to a comfortable coffee table height, rather than the size of the table overall? Just speculating…

    What am I missing?
    How does this make it bigger?
