Cats are fussy and they can’t decide whether they should choose the white Devlin or the black Kitson chair. They both look comfortable and they combine classical and modern elements so well…On the other hand, the fur matches the seat on the second chair and you just can’t argue with that. When you bring home your new Jonah Sofa, who can blame this little dog for being enthusiastic about it? It’s just so sleek, comfortable and eye-catching at the same time. It would be a shame is someone were to ruin it on the first day. The Fonteys dressing table and stool are the perfect playground. Who needs all that cool furniture for pets when you have this combo? There’s even a mirror you can use to spy on your playmate when he thinks he’s hiding under the table.
The coffee table is the piece that ties it all together. It often serves as a focal point in the living room and it’s always a must have. This is why designers are constantly innovating and coming up with new designs meant to increase the coffee table’s functionality or aesthetic appeal. The materials they use are sometimes odd. Concrete coffee tables are, for example, may not be very popular but they’re definitely interesting. The Mason coffee table shows us that concrete has a sophisticated side. That side was showcased in a minimalist design which emphasizes the table’s polished surface, clean lines and cool gray color.
This is a very similar project and a great way to give your plain coffee table a rustic look with a weathered gray wooden top. The design and finish go particularly well with the coastal décor but you can basically match this piece with all sorts of interiors. The steps to create something like this are pretty simple. First, get a Lack Ikea coffee table and assemble it. Then get some wood and cut the boards to size. Stain them with your favorite color. Carefully measure the boards and place them on top of the table so they sit evenly. You can leave some gaps between them if you like the look. Then nail down the boards and that’s pretty much it.
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.
