Desktop with rugged wheels as coffee table

Materials: VIKA VEINE table top, wheels from hardware store

Description: Inspired by a table seen in a commercial with big wheels as “feet” for a coffee table I searched through IKEA’s table top selection. VIKA VEINE fit my needs for size and storage. Because of built in storage the table is of perfect height as a coffee table, 36 cm from the floor.

1. Buy and assemble VIKA VEINE
2. Buy 4 wheels in hardware store and appropriate screws.

Good luck!
