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.
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?
While the perfect rattan chair might jump out at you, it might not. So don’t limit yourself! Rattan chairs aren’t the only pieces of rattan furniture. There are consoles, bar carts, ottomans and many other pieces. Just keep looking until you find one that will fit your living room perfectly. Are you loving the airy rattan style but not really the color? One word: paint. Just because it’s rattan doesn’t mean it’s untouchable. So grab a can of spray paint in that bright shade you’ve been eyeing and go to work. Frugal tip, this is also a great way to bring an old inherited piece of rattan furniture to life in a modern living room like yours.
