Hacker Help: Un-hacking a Lack?


Materials: Lack

Description: I currently have two sets of Lack side tables stacked on top of each other and glued together that serve as storage, one on each side of my TV cabinet. It’s worked OK for the past year, but I want to upgrade it to something that looks just a bit nicer. I was able to get another pair of Lack side tables (so I now have a total of 6) of Craigslist for cheap but they’re in a different color.

Ideally, what I’d like to do is have something I’d like to do is have the same basic thing but have it so that each Lack-stack is sitting on the third Lack tabletop (so it would be top, legs, top, legs, top). The problem is that the I (a) want to keep the red and (b) would be really bothered by the black of the new Lack tables just being at the bottom.

So is there a way for me to un-glue the Lack stacks I have now without damaging them too badly so that I can put the red tabletops on the top and the bottom and the black ones in the middle? If not I can just repaint or decoupage all the shelves but I’d rather not.
