How to extend legs on metal ikea table?

Most people don't realize how easy it is to extend the legs on their metal ikea table. With a few simple tools and a little bit of elbow grease, you can easily add a few inches to the height of your table. This is a great way to accommodate taller guests or simply to give yourself a bit more legroom when you're working at your table.
Here's what you'll need to extend the legs on your metal ikea table:

-4 metal ikea table legs
-4 sets of extensions (ikea part #100507)
-16 washers
-16 screws
-1 drill
-1 screwdriver
  1. Begin by measuring the length of your table legs. You'll need to purchase extensions that are 2-3 inches longer than the legs themselves.
  2. Next, drill a pilot hole through the center of each extension.
  3. Place a washer over each screw and then thread the screw through the extension and into the leg. Repeat this process for all 4 extensions.
  4. Tighten the screws until the extensions are firmly in place.
That's it! You've now successfully extended the legs on your metal ikea table. Enjoy your newfound legroom!
