So, this probably isn’t a hack or so, but I do like how it turned out.
I got myself a 2×2 expedit and realized it was way to high for it to be my side-table. I started thinking and went ahead and got me the 1×1 Expedit shelf and used the sideboards from that to make this sidetable more suitable. Still a tiny bit to low, I attached the (barely visible legs) and, yes.. Very happy with the height. I had to paint the glass-door-innards black since they only are sold in white.
