Hackers Help: Taller MULIG Valet Stand?


I have a MULIG valet stand that I am basically using as a (semi) privacy screen in my somewhat non-private cubicle. The problem is it needs at about 4″ more to be effective.

I thought that it would be a good idea to elevate it by putting on casters so that I could easily roll the valet stand. However, the base of the stand isn’t very strong and I feel almost like it would need stabilizers. It’s probably easy enough to drill holes at the base of each of the 4 legs and attach a wheel. However, I feel like the IkeaHackers community can come up with an even better idea!

Any help/ideas on how to raise this stand up about 4″ (preferably by adding wheels!)?

    I had that idea, too, but you could also just use a square of wood or two boards, one for each side. Attach them to the legs and add the casters.

    My initial idea: Use a Lack tabletop (or something similar), drill holes mostly through the table top (but not all the way!) sized for the valet feet to sit in snugly, then attach casters to bottom of tabletop. The Lack is honeycomb fibre in the center and solid near the corners, so it would take some measuring of where to best drill for the feet.
