Yeah, I was afraid of that. My IKEA table has extra leaves stored underneath. Somehow, unless you sort of slide into your chair and keep your legs low, you hit the sharp corner of the wood part that stores the leaves, and if you have really bony knees like I do, it HURTS. Hoping you find a good way to work this out. *IKEA does have a lot of great small tables without wine racks underneath, and great kitchen chairs. They have some combos, too. Just a thought.*So the first thing I did with the new table...

I bumped my knee on the rack underneath and spilled some beer. dustydiamond1 called it!
So I have a workaround until I can buy a Dremel and cut those outer bars away. I call it the “hotel position”: plenty of ballroom! I’m manspreading around this tiny table since my knees don’t fit underneath.

I’m not certain I’m keeping it. But then it was also cheap enough that I could turn it into patio furniture or bear it out for a bit until I find a replacement. I suspect the nagging desire to get rid of the box and all the associated packing trash will dictate how long a trial before I eat it and keep it.

At least it’s tiny enough and lightweight that I can move it out of the way to clean or even push it against the wall to use that empty space in front of the mirrors. I suppose it could be my indoor/outdoor. It wouldn’t be too tough to carry it out to the deck if we get good deck sitting weather again.
But, on another subject, how about those DODGERS?!!
