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.
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.
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.
