Ikea lack table
When furnishing our flat we were very price conscious as we were starting from scratch and had to kit the whole flat out. We had just got married and had a baby so didn't have a lot of spare cash. The price of these tables, which are £7.99 is what attracted us to them. We bought it with a view to purchasing something better when we could afford to.
It is worth mentioning that we actually have a black one.
These tables are very easy to put together you simply twist the legs on via double sided screws it takes 5 minutes tops and makes for a very sturdy table. The table is a perfect square measuring 55cm by 55cm and 45 cm high. It's very light so easy to move while being strong, it apparently holds 25kg but I have stood on this while changing light bulbs and it has supported me with no problems, I weigh considerably more than 25kg.
As previously mentioned I have a baby, now she's toddling around in her walker she seems to get every single surface completely covered in dribble/sticky stuff. The first time I really had to scrub the table rather than just wipe it the paint started coming off. So we now have a red patch on the table where the base colour is coming through. I am not particularly concerned about this as we don't use the table for decoration purposes but to keep things on when we come home, keys, purse bag etc so it's not imperative that it's in good condition. This probably wouldn't be a problem if you don't have young children but I thought it was worth mentioning.
All in all I'm very happy with this table. It serves it's purpose well at a very reasonable price. 5 stars from me!
Summary: I would reccomend
