The usage of 2 IKEA KYRRE stools I made a compact, corner-friendly set of nesting tables in document time.
I had sought after nesting tables because of area restriction in the lounge.
The plan being the upper desk would hang a pot plant. The decrease desk would slide out very simply to sit down subsequent to the EKENÄSET armchair to supply a strong position for a cup of espresso and so on. After which be out of the way in which once more afterwards.
Comparable: Shortening the VITTSJÖ nesting tables
I didn’t need sq. or oblong nesting tables as the entire front room is filled with proper angles. Commercially to be had spherical tables with spherical steel bases had been simply no longer what I used to be after. (And continuously very heavy as smartly).
Maximum tables had been too massive or too top. I think this little hack of the KYRRE stools gave me precisely what I used to be on the lookout for at a cut price worth.
I now have 2 additional stools (albeit with one at a kids’s peak) for emergency seating when additional other people discuss with.
Every week after completing this hack I went to IKEA once more to search for one thing else.
As I used to be strolling in the course of the store I spotted the IKEA SVALSTA nesting tables. I in truth can’t say if I made a unconscious word of them sooner than I had the foundation to make use of the KYRRE.

General price within the Netherlands: 20 Euro.
I had to begin with was hoping the decrease KYRRE would take a seat flush underneath the upper one. However this handiest works if you happen to raise the upper one onto the decrease one.
And fairly frankly, it then seems like two stools quite than nesting tables. So I’m happier with the glance it has now.
I’m debating whether or not so as to add a veneer trim of darker picket to the sides of the seat. And most likely additionally down every leg facet to tie-in the color of the tables to the darkish picket of the EKENÄSET armchair?
I can replace if this occurs. But even so, I’m no longer positive how stain-resistant the surfaces are to spills so I may additionally wish to varnish the KYRRE. One last item, I can stick on felt underneath the newly reduce legs to offer protection to the ground.
