LINNMON and LERBERG, A Long and Narrow Dining Table





Photo 1-781702

Materials: LINNMON table top, LERBERG trestle legs, ADILS legs

Description: We needed a long table for our dining room because we have a very large window seat. However, we were having a lot of trouble finding anything that was long enough without it either being much to wide for the space or way too expensive. So we decided to hack some IKEA!

1) We bought two of the 47 inch LINNMON table tops, two LERBERG trestle legs, and two ADILS table legs.

2) We connected the table tops with the ADILS legs by holding them together and screwing them so that two of the holes in the ADILS screw plate were on one table top and the other three on the other. This also gave the table added stability.

3) We flipped it over and put the LERBERG trestles on the ends.

The cost of the table was a total of $66.98! It was super simple to put together, and didn’t require any extra materials.

A very simple, and very inexpensive hack which provided us with the perfect dining table for our space.

    Hi, I love the setup. Where did you get the chairs?

    Fits the room nicely and looks great, a really nice hack :)

    But I’d suggest you pass by a hardware store and pick up a few flat screw plates to secure the Linnmons together more securely. The plates for the legs looks a bit small to me and they might rip out the screws if it gets handled roughly.

    Would be a shame if the table broke becouse someone forgot and lifted it uneavenly in one edge one time to many…

      Thanks! The trouble with adding more screw plates is that the Linnmons table tops are honeycomb inside, the small area around where they intend the legs to screw in are the only places where it is reinforced.

    I love this and might one because I just got a pair of the Lerberg trestles. May I please know how you attached the legs to the table top?

    Nice job! Was thinking of doing something similar for a music studio set up. Only thing is, where the bar is is where I’d sit ideally.. Would it be possible to place two more trestle stands further in from the meeting ends of the table tops to create a gap in which to sit do you think? Cheers.

    I have been searching high and low for a table like this because our kitchen is tiny and could only manage a long and narrow table. The only thing I am concerned about (since someone mentioned stability earlier) my cats jump on the table from time to time. Can it handle a 15 lb fat cat? LOL :)
