Description: If I had known about this site earlier, I would have properly documented my build.

The Grundtal legs, Leksvik top and unknown Ikea shelf, in its first life it was my coffee table. In its second life I decided I needed a more mature laptop desk with shelf space.

I simply attached the Vika legs to the Leksvik top. Then I used the Grundtal legs as wall brackets securing it with concrete screws. And placed the 1/4″ top on the wall bracket to rest with the fluorescent lamp against the wall.

I wonder what I will do for its third life.

Just a side note those chairs hanging are Jokkmokk. I live in a small apartment and needed some space. And until the time call for it. These will be my shelves
