Sitting on your human’s lap, on a beautiful Ritchie Sofa and just enjoying being there…this is the life. This cute little Cockapoo may not excel at showing off emotions but deep down we just know she really loves those rainbow buttons. The piranha fish on the pillow…that’s a different story. You just know you’ve chosen the right armchair when you see your cat deep asleep and so comfortable and peaceful you couldn’t possibly disturb it. I guess you could sit on the floor for now. Who cares as long as your cat is happy on the new Ritchie Armchair with candy pink upholstery and rainbow buttons, right?
One or more rustic accessories can really warm up the décor and the ambiance, making a space feel a lot more inviting and comfortable. And since mirrors are so versatile and part of every home’s interior design, they’re the perfect choice. If it’s the look you care about and not necessarily the authenticity of the item, you can even build the frame yourself and make it look rustic. Sometimes it’s just easier to make something yourself than to try to find the item in stores or at yard sales. It’s why we’ll start with a few DIYs. The materials needed for the first one include a large pine board, wide enough for you to attach a mirror to it and to leave some space around the edges, 4 trim pieces, 4 detailed interior trim pieces and a dark stain of your choice.
Our enthusiasm for DIY projects involving Ikea products led us to explore a bit more the versatility of the Ikea Lack Table. There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.
