We love a good IKEA hack around here, and today we have something extra special for you – a double IKEA hack! This tiered serving tray spins, so guests can easily reach that brie that they’re so desperate to eat. It uses up less surface area on the table too, by taking advantage of vertical space. Click through to check out the full tutorial.
Fun, right? You can customize the colors too. So let’s get started!
Here’s what you’ll need for your spinning tiered serving tray:
- IKEA Snudda
- IKEA Vildapel (you won’t need the accompanying casters)
- (2) 1″ diameter dowel rods, 4.5″ long each
- Acrylic craft paints
- Wood Glue
Begin by painting the dowel rods your desired color. You may need two coats – let the first coat dry thoroughly before starting the second one.
Next, find the center of the IKEA Snudda Lazy Susan. Place a dollop of wood glue there and place the bottom dowel rod in the glue. Let it dry for a couple of hours so it is secure. Then, find the center of the underside of the Vilapel and glue that to the top of that same dowel rod.
Next, find the center of the top of the Vilapel and glue the top dowel rod to it. Let everything dry overnight. And that’s it! One of the easiest double IKEA hacks ever.
A note: I wouldn’t recommend putting a big heavy bowl of salsa on the top tier of this serving tray – stick to lighter items just to be safe.
You can get creative with the colors too – metallic might be fun, or even a colorful pattern. Have fun with it!
