I’m sharing my hack of making two furniture from one IKEA item – “FÖRHÖJA”.
This wheeled kitchen cart is very nice and popular (in Israel at least). It’s quite functional as well.
So…. basically, cut it straight in the middle and get yourself a nice and elegant coffee table and a bench…
You can assemble the whole unit and cut it with a saw or you can do it before you build this product like I did.
Just connect the cross beam of the middle shelf to the legs and draw a line right above it (look at the IKEA instructions to see which side is will be pointing upward later on).
