I received an order from a client for a ticket booth, which was to be placed at the entrance to an auditorium. The client wanted it on a budget. So I turned to IKEA for materials to DIY an affordable but stylish ticket booth / counter.
All in, it cost us about €81.00 for materials.
The client loved it and it’s been used in the ticket office for the last 5 years, with no complaints.
At that time, IKEA sold a LACK end table, which unfortunately seems to be discontinued. IKEA stores in select countries still carry a KALLAX single cube which is very similar to the LACK end table, except for the casters and a slightly smaller dimension.
IKEA items used:
3 LACK end table (discontinued) The KALLAX cube is almost the same but comes without wheels
