Minimalist headboard

Lack side table

Description: I’ve seen similar hacks earlier this year but I always thought that they required too much effort and too much materials. Maybe I’m just lazy…

So I came up with adjusting the stands for a Lack side table from the bottom to the side of the table. So the table becomes upright and tall instead of flat.

To make the hack stand firm I used four of the total eight legs. To make it into one piece you can fix it with some sort of plate from the hardware store.

If you want to you can heighten the headboard by using Lack shelf 110cm x 27cm.

This hack measures 110cm x 95cm and cost me about 4,40 USD (2,70 GBP).
