So I bought an Ikea FALSTER[1] sunbed and liked it. But while it sits around not being used as a sunbed, it makes a good bench for several people to sit on … except it’s not designed to take their weight.

Question: How to support the sunbed underneath so that more than one person can sit on it?

Answer: Buy a FALSTER table (originally 75cm high) and saw off the legs so that it fits under the sunbed. Bonus: it doubles as a small table when you do want to use it as a sunbed.
