Flisat Table Assembly & Unboxing
The Flisat Sensory Table by Ikea is a simple table to assemble. You will only need a screw driver. There are 5 steps in the instructions:
- Place the wood pegs into the wood divider.
- Place the wood divider across the table, aligning the pegs in the peg holes.
- Flip the table over and use the 4 screws to secure the divider.
- Screw the 4 legs into the table top. The legs will screw in clockwise.
- Place your table right side up. Place the bin coverings into the slots. Now, your Flisat sensory table is assembled!
Following these instructions the entire table took less than 5 minutes to fully assemble. We also appreciate how simple the instructions are and how only a screwdriver is need to assemble this sensory table.
A quick tip for step 1. The screws and wooden pegs are located inside the cardboard packaging, so locate the hardware before recycling your cardboard packaging. For step 3, to make screwing in the divider easier we placed a piece of the cardboard packaging below the divider to help apply pressure upwards. Otherwise, the divider may not be snug or align correctly.
