Materials: LINNMON table top, HYLLIS shelving unit x 2, BOSSE bar stool x 2
I had an extra Linnmon table top from the office that I brought home, and wanted to transform it into a working countertop where we can eat at and do work standing up plus had some space for extra storage underneath. Had a couple of older Hyllis shelves, and after measuring I figured out the height would be just nice for the job.
Tools needed: Sheet iron tin snips, electric drill.
Use a 250mm tin snip, smaller than that you’re going to have trouble cutting the Hyllis. I tried it with a metal saw but was just too time consuming. Why I mentioned the older Hyllis shelf was that Ikea recently updated their Hyllis shelves, and made them more sturdier with extra folds on the sides, which made them harder to cut. The older ones where just plain 1mm sheet metal, and easy to cut with tin snips.
Assemble the Hyllis as per usual, except for the top shelf. Cut the pieces that holds all the shelves together just where the second from top shelf is. I drilled extra holes just below this second shelf, to add extra storage space using the unused top shelf.
