This project we used:

  • 2 4×2 KALLAX shelving units
  • 4 KALLAX drawer inserts
  • 4 KALLAX door inserts
  • 6 KALLAX caster sets
  • 2 LINNMON table tops secured by L-brackets

My husband assembled each shelving unit and added the doors and drawers. He then added the casters (3 sets on each unit). He then placed the two LINNMON table tops perpendicular to the units so that it created a space in between – perfect for a bar stool height chair! The table tops are secured by four L-brackets on the inside of each unit. I’ve seen similar hacks but none that used these particular table tops or the KALLAX casters.

This arrangement gives me a 59″x 59″ work top!  With the casters, the table is 35″ tall – just right for standing while working.

    Awesome! I did something similar for a sewing table but it just didn’t work out and I took it apart. Maybe I’ll resurrect it as a cutting table!
