LACK Nightstand

Materials: 1 LACK Table

Description: So I needed 2 night stands that matches my MALM bed, saw so many LACK table hacks, so I decided to make a simple nightstand using Lack table…
1. Saw the LACK in half or desired length. One panel for top, and one panel for the backing (height)
2. Saw the 2 legs to match the height of the back panel.
3. Fill the bottom the the legs with a piece of wood cuz it’s hollow.
4. Use the merg bracket and drill in the back of the top panel and backing, make sure they are facing the right direction…
5. Twist in the legs.

The result is really nice… :)

    But then you need not one but two lack tables, right?

    i think the back piece is the other half of the top piece that got chopped in half.

    I love this idea but I don’t get it where does the back piece(the part against the wall) come from?
