This IKEA Balcony Table Is Perfect for Small Spaces

We fully believe in making the most of small spaces — especially when we are often eating, relaxing, and working in the same square footage.

To that end, we were happy to see a new IKEA release that's all about maximizing your balcony. The Torparö balcony table was designed to be mounted onto your railing. You can use it to create a little al fresco dining moment, or to catch some rays while working remotely.

The best part: It retails at just $19. You can clean it easily with a "mild soapy solution," as the retailer explains. Just be sure to cover it or bring it inside when the weather takes a turn. The item is part of the Torparö line which includes lots of other outdoor essentials — like a foldable table and various chairs — if you have more room to get creative.

Time to make ourselves an iced tea and enjoy the warm weather.
