Where do you keep your wine glasses? Is it a hanging wine glass rack, a cabinet, one of those traditional wine glass holders or something completely different that you prefer? The possibilities and storage solutions are diverse and they each have their own defining characteristics that make them special. Choosing a certain type has to do with a lot of details including the space’s destination, size and type of décor or style.
Sometimes found in bedrooms, other times in bathrooms, vanity tables are often perceived as chic accessories. Their designs adapt to a variety of styles but, regardless of that, they always a certain bohemian flair about them. Vanity tables are always accompanied by a chair or a stool and a small makeup vanity can also include other accessories such as mirrors or extra storage. The vanity stool is just as important as the table or cabinet itself.
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.
Ikea Lack coffee tables are extremely versatile and they can even change function if you desire such a project. For example, you can turn such a table into a comfortable tufted ottoman. You might have to cut the legs a bit to make them shorter. Then use foam and fabric to make the cozy seat cushion and attach it to the table. There’s more than one way to give this coffee table a new look. So how about adding some mid-century charm to the mix? For this project you only need to use the top of the Lack table. You also need to find some tapered legs to use with it. So basically install the legs and make sure they’re symmetrical and stable.
