Leave it to the clever internet whizzes to figure out what to build with a set of wooden IKEA planters and old metal casters. For those of you who have been in need of a moveable laptop table with some practical storage for your chargers, remotes, and other media, this is the perfect DIY for you.

What you need to complete this project:

  • 4 IKEA plant pots "BJUR├ľN"
  • 4 legs of an older IKEA-couchtable (with screws etc.)
  • Some casters
  • Minimum of 8 screws/nuts
  • A handy drill

Got it? Good. Basically, you'll need to drill a few holes to connect the screws and bolts of the older IKEA legs, making sure it's level with the table, add the casters, and assemble it all together.

While we're definitely diggin' the good use of the planters' original design to be used as ample storage for your miscellaneous living room items, the combination with the old sofa legs and casters certainly makes it the perfect height for a laptop worktable - a gorgeous one to boot!
