Ikea Lack Side Table
Advantages: Very light, very cheap
Disadvantages: Not at all robust
As we moved into our new flat and decided to furnish it from scratch we were on a tight budget and decided to get pretty much every thing from IKEA.
I had been looking for a small coffee table to go with the sofa we were planning to buy, but all my plans went awry in when I got there. I was planning on getting a longer coffee table, and then I saw this pretty little thing for £5- now you cant beat that for table!
As with all Ikea products it comes flatpacked. The assembly is really simple- you just have to attach the legs to the table. The instructions that come along with it are quite easy and simple to follow. The assembled size is 55cm x 55cm and a height of 45 cm. It is really lightweight, probably less than half a kilogram. Ikea claims that the maximum load is 25 kg, which might be true as nothing has happened to it even after sitting on it for a short while.
It is made of particleboard/fibreboard and coated with plastic and acrylic paint. Cleaning is really easy, simply wipe with a clean cloth.
I got the dull white version for £5, to go with my white sofa. There is also a green coloured one for £5. It comes in a variety of other colours and designs with prices going upto £15.
I mainly keep it in the hall and it is mostly only subjected to light use, apart from serving as the stand for my baby's bath which it has done quite well. I dont think that it can withstand much more than that, though.
Considering that I paid only £5 for this table, I am very happy with it.
Summary: Cheap and cheerful
