I was looking for a large round side table to put our garden’s water tank on, but most tables I found were either too bulky or expensive. So I thought I’d improvise, and decided the best would be to use the Ikea Snudda lazy susan as a table top, since is was the perfect diameter for the tank (15 inch, or 39 cm).
What you’ll need:
- Snudda lazy susan from Ikea
- Marius Stool from Ikea– you’ll need the two stool legs without the platic seat.
- a plier or socket wrench
- a drill and screwdriver
- Four screws
First, remove the two pieces of the Snudda apart. You can either do this with a plier or a socket wrench. Here’s the Snudda top on the left, with the two Marius legs on the right.
Next, Attach the two Marius legs together according to the Ikea instruction leaflet.
Now center the Marius legs above the Snudda, and mark where you’d like to attach the legs on the Snudda with a pencil- It’s easiest to use one with a long tip like this one through each of the four holes on the Marius legs.
Use a drill to drill four holes where the marking’s are. The holes are only meant to help you screw the legs to the table top, so remember to use a small drill bit (definitely smaller than the screws) and to avoid drilling more than halfway the wood).
Finally, choose four screws that are at least 30% longer than the screws that came with the original Marius stool. I used Ikea ones. Just make sure they’re not too long, otherwise they’ll poke through the wood on the table top.
And that’s it! easy ha?
I’m super happy with how this turned out, and now our water tank has a perfect spot on our balcony…
Now it’s your turn! let me know how your’s turned out…
