Coffee table assembly-

The great thing about the YPPERLIG coffee table is that it is SUPER easy to assemble. Here are the IKEA instructions in case you want a peak.

Apply some pressure-

When you stick down the Peel 'n Stick baseplate, be sure to apply some pressure so that the adhesive contacts the table surface fully.

Prevent brick spillages-

The magnetic tins are what you would expect for a $, so we've got a little trick to help make them more secure. Wrap a thin layer of the nylon electrical tape around the top of the container. This provides some extra grip for the lid and stops the brick spillages.
