Materials: 1x BILLY bookcase, 1x VIKKA AMON table top, 2x VIKKA BYSKE table legs legs
Description: After moving into a small flat, my wife had the brilliant idea of combining our bookcase with a bar-type dining table. We searched high and low on the net for similar ideas but the closest thing we found was the expedit desk (ugly and too small for us).
Much to our relief her inspiration paid off and we are now very happy with our new dining table/bookcase combo.
Here’s what we did: 1. fastened the billy to the wall to ensure it’s stable. 2. attatch vikka byske legs to vikka amon table top (holes already drilled). 3. place free end of table on the fixed shelf of the billy (approx 105cm high). All we did to fasten the table top was put some velcro tape between it and the shelf – works perfectly but a more secure method could be found (some little L brackets maybe).
