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.
Once you cut the board to size, set the mirror in the middle and measure and cut the trim pieces. Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.
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.
