The table arrived on Monday.
It does fit nicely in the corner and, despite being quite heavy, is relatively easy to move around – it folds flat in situ and can be rolled around on the wheels at one end.
Having said that it would be a lot more convenient if I could just stand it upright directly into the space where it would stay, rather than having to shuffle it into the corner. I suppose this is just one of many compromises that are needed if you try and cram a lot of things into a small space.
I plan to make a simple plywood cover to clip over the top when it is in the standing position – this is partly for aesthetic reasons, but it will also have other uses too:
- act as a temporary worktop when i can’t be bothered to fold away the table (which I suspect will be often)
- form a level base to stand the table on when it is taken outside (which will be rarely given the British weather).
- can be hooked to the wall behind the table to prevent it tipping over and squashing passing children
