Our boat came with a beautiful teak coffee table with a lattice top. The problem is, it’s completely useless when eating dinner, unless you want to bend over at the waist with your head directly above your plate. We really wanted something higher that could be used as a kitchen table…but we didn’t want a huge kitchen table in the salon.
We discussed taking the teak coffee table to a carpenter to see if he/she could alter the table so we could lift it up for meals, and put it back down again for the rest of the day.
Richard suggested a trip to Ikea. I was doubtful. Would we have to spend hours assembling something? He was right. We found a very attractive table that is high enough for meals, but that can be folded and put to the side at other times. It was only around $79 and the stain on it matches the rest of the boat. Best of all, it didn’t require any assembly!
You can see pictures, and buy one, RIGHT HERE.
