About a year ago we bought a Kivik sectional from IKEA. We liked how comfy it was compared to the some of the other Ikea couches, but we didn’t like how low it was.
We thought we’d just add legs to the couch and it would be an easy upgrade. Boy were we wrong! There’s this little metal “leg” that attaches the sofa to the chaise, and there wasn’t a really good place to attach a leg there.
We came up with a simple solution, basically building a few plywood legs that could then be stuck inside of an upside down bed riser.
