Hacker help: Call for suggestions: NORBO dining/side table

Photo: IKEA.com

Materials: NORBO wall-mounted drop-leaf table, ????

Description: Looking for suggestions to transform my NORBO into a full-size (4+ people) dining room table that collapses into a side table when not in use. I like the NORDEN gateleg table, but it’s expensive and bulky, and doesn’t seat too many people.

Thank you!

    Aw, all the previous comments disappeared in the migration. My 2 cents: yes, a longer table can be done with 2 or 3 Norbo, a new wall mount, and an entirely new leg apparatus that rests on the floor. The new setup would protrude more from the wall when folded (additional tabletop plus folded leg), but it could still be flipped down completely or propped up as a 2-seater.
