Nordmyra window table

Materials: Two Nordmyra chairs, One big and heavy window (1/2″ X 17.5″ X 52.5″), sand paper, handsaw or jigsaw, self-adhesive felt strip.

Description: 1. Remove the seat of both chairs, and keep bolts on the side.
2. Take the saw and cut the stiles of each chairs sharply.
3. To get a good finishing cut, use the sand paper.

4. Put back the 8 bolts, head on top (if you want to have a metal/wood style)
5. Put felt strip on each corner. Make sure that those strips are thicker than the bolt head.
6. Take the window and put it on the structure. The window is 30kg, so there’s no need to fix it.
7. That’s it, enjoy!

    Instead of the felt bumpers I’d go with self-adhesive rubber pads (used on table and chair legs). It will give you a little extra cushion, adds a non-skid surface, and is available in a number of colours.

    I love the look! How about the height? isn’t it too low?

    It is vitally important to use tempered glass for this hack. If you use untempered window glass and it breaks, it will create dangerous jagged edges.

    PLEASE make sure your glass is tempered, especially if you have children in the household!
