Low Lack Attack

Materials: LILLÅNGEN leg frame x 2, Lack side table top x 2

Description: Super simple Lack hack , in fact only one step is needed!

1. Instead of using the usual Lack legs, attach a LILLÅNGEN leg to the bottom of a Lack side table top. And you’re done!

Great for minimalists and mod furniture lovers as well as small spaces. And since I bought the LILLÅNGEN legs as-is for $5, the total cost of per table was only $12!

    I recreated 2 of these for my modern living room. They looked awesome in my opinion but most of my guests find them impractical as the tables are too low for regular usage. As much as I love them, I think I am gonna do another Ikea heck coffee table that’s a bit higher.

    It is me again “Anonymous” who wrote a comment/question on May 22, 2013 :) I called Ikea customer service but they said they didn’t know technical details of leg frame they sold :o Anyway, later I took black plastic ended screw to a hardware store and hardwareman told me that the black plastic ended screws under each leg of LILLANGEN leg frame (all products) is M8 standard, so I have bought 4 of this =>,PR-5902.html and I raised the leg frame 10cm more! It looks great!

    Does anyone know what the standard (M8, M10, 3/8 or 5/16) of black plastic ended screw under each leg of LILLANGEN leg frame (product code: 902.051.96) ?? Because I want to get rid of these, black plastic ended screws and I want to raise leg frame up 10cm more by adding one of these =>,LA_1713-2.html#labels=1713-2

    Approximately 14″ by 16″ with a 6″ depth -

    what width and depth are the legs that you used?

  6. Sisi says:

    also by solid in the middle I meant it is thick enough for the lillangen legs to be attached :)

    Area rug is from CB2 :) , and the lack is solid in the middle, it is super sturdy!

    Isn’t Lack hollow in the middle area? I’d worry that the legs aren’t securely attached.

    I am personally loving that area rug and could really use it in my place!

    Very cool! Hopefully it will be more durable without the flimsy LACK legs. :P

    This is so simple, but it’s one of the reason hacks were invented and are so popular – this looks like something you’d have to pay hundreds of dollars for. Awesome!
